Son doesn't like to speak but will sign with baby signing

by Luisa Ramirez-Johnson
(San Antonio, TX )

My son is 19 months old. He has a few speaking words, but does not like to speak.

He prefers to sign. He sees a speech therapist twice a week. He won't speak with her either. He is picking up the sign language very quickly.

I'm happy that he is able to communicate in some way.

Response from Baby Sign Language Team:

Thanks for sharing, Luisa! Isn't baby sign language terrific?!?

It's wonderful to hear that your son is getting further along with signs!

Keep up the terrific work, and he will be surprising his therapist in no time!

Wishing you all the best!
