The two most popular are “ASL” based and “Variations of ASL”. Sign2Me uses an ASL based program called “Sign with your Baby”, which was created after recognizing that children of deaf parents were able to communicate much earlier than children of hearing parents. Another method is “Baby Signs”, which are variations of pure ASL. The concept behind is that babies’ hands cannot properly form ASL signs, so parents are taught a slightly different gesture than actual ASL. SignShine believes in the “ASL” based method, no made up signs, but respects all other methods.
Next time won't you sing with me?
