Free Online Resource: Baby Sign Language Dictionary

Two Little Hands Productions makes award winning sign language products including Baby Signing Time, Signing Time, Potty Time and Treeschoolers. I love their products and have used them with my speech-language therapy clients as well as my own children. The Signing Time website gives a wonderful overview of all the programs they have to offer and also contains a fabulous free resource. The Baby Sign Language Dictionary is available under Resources and features videos of signs for many simple words organized alphabetically or by category. An explanation of how to make the sign is given verbally as well as in written form below the video. New signs are added regularly and users can even request a specific sign.
Here is an example of one sign from the free online dictionary:



Signing Time also has three apps available in the iTunes store. If you would like to download one or all of these apps, please support Smart Apps for Special Needs by using the links provided.

Signing Time ASL - Sign Language

Signing Time is an early childhood application that focuses on developing language skills using American Sign Language (ASL). The application contains a collection of 48 flash cards with professional quality video explanations based on award winning Signing Time Series, Volumes 1 and 2. Several songs from Emmy® Award Nominated Rachel Coleman are also included that all ages will enjoy. 

 Would you like to communicate with your child before they can talk? Do you want to increase your child's reading and language abilities? Scientific studies suggest that "typical" children who learn to sign have higher IQ scores, are better adjusted, and read at an earlier age.
