  • It is active and fun, developing co-ordination, rhythm and movement
  • It develops confidence and social skills
  • It promotes positive interactions and helps children and parents communicate

 

Signing is a development of babies natural use of gesture.

  • It gives the pre-verbal child a means of communication, therefore reducing frustration and tantrums
