Washington County, Hagerstown: ‘Signing with Young Children’

March 4, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am EST

Using Joseph Garcia’s method, babies can tell you such things as “I’m hungry,” “I’m thirsty,” or “I have an earache,” many months before they can speak. Every parent will be amazed at how much babies can communicate with their hands.

Babies have control over their hands long before they develop the fine motor skills required for speech. By teaching their infants to sign, starting as early as eight months, more and more parents, grandparents and caregivers are recognizing the many benefits of this early communication.
