We are glad you are here. This company was founded to allow us to share our love of ASL Sign Language with others. When we found the product Signing Time and began using it with our youngest son 3 years ago, we had no idea what an impact it would make in our lives. Now the whole family enjoys signing and helping our 4 year to speak, read and learn more signs.
Since our son was born with Down Syndrome we knew he might have difficulty learning to speak. We tried a couple different sign language programs, and after the first time I watched a Signing Time with him, I knew we had found the right one. He watched that first video every day for a month, while I was getting ready for work. He had just turned 18 months old, and the time change messed with his sleeping routine, so he was up when I needed him to stay sleeping. So I put the play pen in front of the TV, gave him some toys, popped in the Signing Time Video, and went to get ready. I would check on him often, and I rarely even caught him paying attention to the TV. Then one day, 3 weeks later, I came down and he was signing cookie with the video. I was overjoyed.
Signing Time videos soon went on all his wish lists for Birthdays and Christmas. Even as we got more videos in the series, we would have him watch each video every day for a week before going to a new one. That gave him the time he needed to really learn the signs and songs. Now at age 4 he still loves them. When he asks to watch something on TV, he always asks for Signing Time. How cool is that? It is awesome that his favorite show is also an educational one.
Signing time has gotten him ready for school and so much more........ but I will save that for the next post.
