Tip number four is: Make it fun and look for teachable moments!
Signing should be fun! Do not worry about carving time out of your day to sit down and sign with your little. Rather signing can be used throughout your day in natural and fun ways!
Examples can be when your child is feeling hungry ask them if they want “food” or “milk”. Once you asked your little if they want “milk” then give then their need. This will also help encourage signing and empowerment over their environment.
