Signing Time answers the question; “How can signing help your child with special needs?”
Sign language has given a voice many children with special needs, who
otherwise had difficulty communicating. Signing Time helps children of all
abilities communicate better and clearer, including those with autism,
apraxia, down syndrome, spinal bifida, ADD, ADHD, developmental delays,
speech delays and language delays. Signing Time has been instrumental in
unlocking the once silent voices of many children who were unable to
communicate through speech and unable to express even their simplest
thoughts until now.
Rachel Coleman, founder and owner of Signing Time, has seen the benefits
of signing with her own special needs child. Rachel’s daughter Lucy was
born with spinal bifida and cerebral palsy. Doctors worried Lucy would be
unable to speak or use sign language to communicate with her deaf sister,
Leah. After two years of showing no interest in communication and in spite
of her cerebral palsy, Lucy signed her first sign. Now Lucy is fluent in
ASL and English! Lucy is the first of many Signing Time miracles.
Signing is a valuable resource for special needs groups because it can
jump-start learning and communication. Topics include baby’s first words,
manners, food, playtime, family members, and opposites.
