"Baby, Toddler, and Preschool Sign Language" by Signing Families(tm).
|The inimitable Louise Masin Sattler, founder of Signing Families(tm)|
Communication is a key aspect to getting our needs met, expressing ourselves and building relationships. And of course, all of that is directly tied to social emotional development. But, what if a child is too young to talk, has delays that inhibit speaking or has other conditions or factors that mitigate verbalizing their needs? Frustration. Irritation. Tantrums. Explosions.
The “Baby, Toddler, and Preschool Sign Language” DVD helps you help your child reduce frustration and increase cooperation. In her own inimitable style, Louise will have you signing with the best of them. She’ll give you quick, easy ways to remember the signs and she spends plenty of time explaining the origin of most of the signs. All of this helps anchor the signs in your memory, meaning easier recall and a smooth transition to teaching your child!
You’ll have your youngster learning how to share, take-turns, clean-up, pay attention, wait, and use caution sooner than you can say "jump"! Louise even teaches the sign for “STOP”, but, as any admirable psychologist would do, reminds us that using the sign too much will make it lose its effectiveness! Save that sign, and that word, for times when it is really necessary!
This DVD is appropriate for use in the home or the school setting. Parents, as well as teachers will find applicability to their respective settings, and will be able to utilize what is taught on this DVD.
Louise remembered all of the important words to increase social awareness and courtesy, too, helping you teach your youngster the signs for “please”, “thank-you”, “sorry” and “you are welcome.” You’ll teach your child how to ask for help or indicate they are hurt, as well!
Of course, to be worthy of a Kidlutions Preferred Product Award, there must also be a link to helping kids recognize, identify and/or deal with feelings. Yep! It's in there, too! The “Baby, Toddler, and Preschool Sign Language” DVD features 50 English signs, numbers 1-10, the ABCs, as well as Spanish words and numbers in sign, as well.
When she isn’t busy signing, or training teachers and parents on the merits of signing, Louise spends time entertaining the masses on her radio show, “Learning and Laughter with Louise”, which airs Wednesdays at 8 a.m., Central Standard Time, on Toginet Radio.
