    Some of the words are in black font and I cannot click on them why?

    Hi Linda
    The words in black are not yet loaded in the system. We hope to have them up soon

        Hi Kathryn,

        We currently do not have a “focus” flash card, but you can sign “focus” this way: Take both flat hands and hold them up on either side of your head (at eye level), then move them forward simultaneously. They remind us of blinders used on horses. Cheers!

    I belong to a group of Santas. We have been discussing learning signing for hearing impaired children who we visit, or visit us. We have made a list of words and/or questions/phrases we feel would be used most frequently as Santa. We all agreed that flashcards would help us learn the signing for these words etc. more quickly. Are there currently any cards that would be available to help us?

    Hi, am looking for head and face please 🙂


    Hi Sara

    To sign head touch the upper part of your head then touch down near your chin. To sign Face make a clockwise circle with index starting and ending at chin.

    Hi! I just started signing to my 7 month old son. I’m worried that when he starts daycare in two months that it will slow down his progress in learning sign language or decide to not sign back at all since the majority of his day is with people who don’t sign to him. Do you have any suggestions?

    ADMIN – Hi Lorraine,

    Nothing to fear. Your son is brilliant and will figure out who he can sign with and who he can’t. Multilingual children quickly figure out that they can speak English to Daddy, French or English to Mommy, French to Grandpa, Spanish to their teacher, and Mandarin to the dog. I remember my daughter learned a bit of Spanish at school and was puzzled when her daddy couldn’t understand, but soon set about fixing the problem by teaching him.

    Many daycare centers do Baby Sign Language, and if your doesn’t do it now it might be something you can suggest to them.

    How can I tell what my granddaughter is saying? She uses several signs that I understand, however, I’m not sure what she is saying when she touches both index fingers together. I have searched the web for a site that will translate the sign into meaning, however, was unable to find one.

    ADMIN – Hi M,

    It can be tricky decoding early signs without the help of their teacher or parent, because the signs are like baby talk, very rough approximations of the true sign. Touching index finger together could be an approximation of more or hurt.

  6. Deborah

    I was looking for the word great I read good night moon to my son but I am trying to sign word for word but don’t know the sign for GREAT.

    ADMIN – Hi Deborah,

    I would substitute the word big for great.

    I am a nanny and am going to start teaching sign language to the 7 month old girl I care for. I was wondering if there was a simple sign for nanny, or any sign you would recommend she use to refer to me. I see there is a sign for babysitter but I was hoping to find something simpler. Thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Kate,

    Some nannies I know teach the baby their first initial. This is wonderful because parents can also use the sign.

    Bonnie we just uploaded the video for eat. Please visit our baby sign language video dictionary

    I understand how to teach things like “dog” and “more” but I’m not sure how too teach concepts like hurt and other similar situations where I’m not exactly how she feels. For example, if she was fussy and I wasn’t sure why, I would like for her to be able to show me the sign for hurt next to her mouth if she had teething pain or next to her tummy if she had gas. But if I’m not sure what’s wrong with her in the first place how do I make the sign association to teach it especially at a high repetition?

    ADMIN – Hi Darcy,

    We will do a blog post in a couple of weeks about teaching abstract principles.

    Hi, Im working with deaf and deafblind people for more than l5 years and i have to say this webside is amazing!!!! I really want to start with a baby sign language classes soon in a country i leave. ( Outside of the states) I found this page, very eduactional, basic, and anybody from interpreters or simply parents can use it in a fun way. Love the flash cards, and videos so easy and practical. in a whole sentences I love it all!! Thanks for this important resource to help parents and educational instructors to expand their skills in this field. I have a question i really want to downloud the flash cards, i have to do it one by one in adobe, or is another easy way to do it all at once. Im not a couputer savy so any help i can accept. Thanks a lot, Jenyffer Gonzalez

    Hi! Thanks for your site and all of the helpful information. I just started researching ASL for my 6 month old and this may be a silly question (and it may be answered somewhere else on the website) but does it matter what hand you use to make the signs? I noticed that you use your right hand in the videos, I am left handed and tend to favor my left hand but I wasn’t sure if it made a difference or not. Thanks!

    ADMIN – Hi Tiana,

    Baby sign language is transitional in nature. As long as you and the family understand what the baby is conveying I would not be so concerned about the dominant hand. However when we are talking about babies with hearing impairments or speech delays that will need sign language long term the hand used does matter.

  12. Marc

    I know it sounds unbelievable, but I’ve been signing more milk to them since birth, and at 9 weeks, they seem to understand, and are trying to make the sign themselves. (they are twins)

    ADMIN – Hi Marc,

    That is awesome. I have heard deaf families report signing as young as three months old, but never heard of anything that young.

    Our readers should note that 9 weeks is far from typical.

  13. Lauren

    Thank you for all of the information! I had no idea babies could start communicating this early.

    This website has been so helpful.

  14. Kelly Tasky

    Thanks so much for this website! I’ve been interested in doing sign language with my daughter (she is almost 6 months old). I love your videos that help really learn the signs. I have a question, though. Since the baby can learn mommy and daddy how do you teach the baby her name? Also, I watch another little boy…I don’t want him getting confused and calling me Mommy, how would I tell him my name (and communicate with his parents my name)?

    My daughter’s name is Khloe and my name is Kelly.

    Thanks…keep up the great website! : )

    ADMIN – Hi Kelly,

    In ASL names are usually finger-spelled, but that is too advanced for babies. I would instead either make up a simple sign, or use the first letter of your names.

    What about the word eat?

    ADMIN – Hi Caleigh,

    We added the sign for eat (it is the same as the sign for food). Thank you for suggesting it.

    I am a Canadian living in Italy and my 8 month old son is half Italian. I speak to him in English and his Dad speaks to him in Italian. I am wondering whether the words that we use when signing should be only in English or if we can do the same signs with both languages. For example, I sign ‘more’ and say ‘more’ in English, while my husband says ‘ancora’ in Italian while doing the sign. Do you think this approach will confuse him?

    Thanks for the wonderful website, I have sent the link to many of my friends on Facebook. This is the clearest and friendliest baby sign language site that I have come across.


    Sacha Wright

    ADMIN – Hi Sacha,

    We recommend using the same sign for both the Italian and the English word. Most bilingual families do it this way, and find the signs helps bridge between the two language and help baby understand that both the sign, Italian, and English words have the same meaning.
