From a Leading Expert in Early Childhood Education
Joseph Garcia, Ed.D. is a pioneer and one of the world’s leading experts in the baby sign language revolution and is considered a leading expert on communicating with infants. In his highly acclaimed books Toddler Talk (1994) and Amazon #1 Parenting and Family Best Seller SIGN with your BABY (Oct 1999), he explored how babies are able to communicate using sign language.
Since then, he’s worked with more than 5,000 families and has developed new methods that make it easier and more fun than ever for you to communicate with your baby and get the results you want.
“Signing with babies enhances the parent-child bond by enriching the interactions between babies and parents and empowering babies with clear communication. It is also a fun and natural way to catch precious glimpses into a baby’s amazingly creative developing mind. Dr. Joseph Garcia’s new book shows parents how to make baby signing an efficient, effective, and loving part of their parenting experience.” ~ Frank James, MD
Your baby’s frustration levels drop dramatically when he or she signs. Using signs, your baby is able to convey needs swiftly and calmly, replacing frustration with communication.
Baby Sign Language Reduces Frustration and Tantrums
“Using sign language with your baby is a no brainer.”
“We were introduced to signing by Joseph Garcia at Evergreen Hospital through the Baby-Parent Classes. He taught us many of the simple signs that we could do with our baby and by the time she was 4.5 months she could tell us when she wanted a drink, her diaper changed and when she was all done….and many more.”
