Teaching your infant sign language is a wonderful way to communicate with him or her, regardless of whether hearing impairment is involved. If you are unfamiliar with American Sign Language, or ASL, the My Smart Hands Baby Sign Language Dictionary app for iPhone and iPad can help you and your little one learn hundreds of ASL signs with pictorial instruction, video, and quizzes. Use the handy alphabetized list of common signs to quickly understand your baby and take advantage of teachable moments.
If you are still learning ASL but must communicate with a hearing impaired person, take advantage of the sign language interpreters employed by Deaf Interpreter Services, Inc. Call (210) 545-2946 today to learn more.
