How many parents out there use sign language for your babies?
My one year old signs because she isn't very vocal but I stll want her to have manners and it makes it easier to understand what she needs and wants. She does please, thank you, and all done. We will begin working on more next.
We've taught a few to our son, whose just a few months older. We taught him the sign for "more" which he uses often, followed by pointing to whatever he'd like more of.
Be thankful your girl's adopted 'please' and 'thank-you' as those are the two signs our son seems to outright refuse to do.
As a former teacher of the deaf, I started signing with my daughter very young. When she was about 10 or 11 months old, she would say "up-a" for "up," for "duck," for "record player," (We still had them then!). So I taught her the sign for up and duck and made up a sign for record player. It was wonderful because I would know exactly what she wanted. She dropped the signs a bit to my disappointment when she started to talk more. Her language had soared though and I believe it was because of the ability to express herself at an early age. I remember one complex sentence she said at about 2 (the terrible two's). I asked her if she did something. "No, me didn't, I said," she replied.

Say a deaf person from Mexico and a deaf person from Russia meet at JFK International Airport, but neither can read or write in the other language - would they be able to communicate using Sign Language?
