I am anxious to start signing with Kaitlyn. From what I've read children with Down syndrome tend to have delayed speech and problems with being understood. They often can comprehend what is being said and want to respond but have a difficult time expressing them self. Sign language hopefully will allow us to communicate with Katie sooner and help her be understood eliminating some of the frustration she might have when trying to express herself.
Do you sign with your child? I would love some pointer's and to hear of your experiences. Has it been helpful? What are some of the signs you started with? I am anxious to get the boys involved. Brady (5yrs) loves to sign the alphabet and I think he will love to teach his sister. I only know the basics so I have some learning to do!
I would love to hear from you!
