Babies taught sign language usually speak sooner than non-signing babies.

*****

Children exposed to more than one language are thought to be more flexible cognitively - not just with respect to language,but also in regard to general problem solving

*****

Signing babies are usually less frustrated, since they are able to communicate their needs through means other than crying

*****

At 6 months babies can distinguish the sounds present in all languages. By the age of 10-12 months monolingual infants begin to lose this ability, but bilingual babies do not.
AT ONE TIME, popular wisdom held that being bilingual slowed down a child's speech development and that kids who learned to use sign language wouldn't be motivated to talk.  Now it's well known that there are huge benefits to learning a 2nd language early, and that babies who learn to sign are not only happier but also speak sooner.  The first three volumes of our Vocabulary Builder Series not only introduce first words, they provide a means for your child to build vocabulary any of four additional languages and learn to sign!   The evidence is in....  an early introduction to a 2nd language has lasting benefits for your child, and the window for introducing that language closes early in childhood.  Don't lose the window of opportunity with your child.
