It was a delight to speak with Lane and learn more about how we can help our babies communicate before they are verbal communicators. Lane is the founder of Tiny Signs helping families discover the benefits of signing with their little ones.
What we Talked About
I’ve always been fascinated with the miraculous language development that occurs in all of us and had many questions for Lane.
- Baby sign language versus ASL (American Sign Language)
- How being able to sign helps our babies be less frustrated.
- How signing actually enhances language development.
- What are the best signs to teach your child
