Months before they can speak, many infants can still communicate if they know some signs from American Sign Language. According to the signing experts at Nuts For Signs LLC, babies can begin signing at 5 months old—meaning they can ask for "more" or say "I'm a prodigy" without encountering a language barrier. Teachers show parents and kids how to sign during Sing, Sign & Play classes, based on the Signing Time series of videos. For youngsters between 3 months and 2 years old, the classes cover signs that refer to food and family and also go over signs for friends, feelings, and other more advanced topics.
