Signing can open up the world of communication to children with Down syndrome by helping them express thoughts that they can’t put into words – or clarify their speech when they have difficulty articulating a word.
Using signs with children who have Down syndrome:
* makes communication possible – or easier
* capitalizes on learning strengths
* allows more time for processing
* supports memory and recall
* reduces frustration
Based on recommendations from parents, educators and other professionals, we’ve created this special product bundle designed to introduce your child to signs that will enhance communication, social interaction and functional skills. While all Signing Time products are useful, the DVDs in this set will teach you and your family the basic signs for family members, feelings, social greetings, daily routines, and more.
