1. We started signing with our first daughter because she did have a speech delay, as you mentioned. She started reading early, about the same time her younger sister was born, so you bet we continued signing with baby #2. 🙂

    I love that you mentioned every family is different–that’s been my experience after teaching sign language classes for babies and toddlers for five years.

    Now that our girls are older, they are interested in ASL as a second language, so it’s amazing how quickly those signs are coming back.

      Hi Melissa,

      Thank you for sharing your experience. That is awesome to hear that your girls are interested in revisiting ASL as a second language! I was wondering if my daughter would remember or pick it up easier now that she is a bit older too.
