Ultimately, the decision to use sign language with the babies and toddlers in your life depends on many factors. Teaching sign language to infants or toddlers cannot negatively affect the children in your care, but it should not completely replace spoken communication.
Sign language use will not create genius babies or automatically raise test scores in older children, though some believe that it will increase academic achievement, there is not enough evidence to prove so.
Sign language use will not delay spoken language acquisition. It will not make it harder for them to read or write. It will also not give them a disability or disadvantage. These are unfortunate myths about teaching sign language to hearing children, and are not true in any way.
Signing with babies and toddlers can be a useful visual tool to strengthen bonds and communication skills with the children in your care.
