Deaf mom in UK teaches sign language to babies
October 15, 2017
28-year-old Victoria Wright from Mountsorrel, United Kingdom, is teaching a special class where babies are taught to use sign language before they can even speak.
Wright set up Babbles in 2016, after years of speech therapy helped her recover from being born deaf as a child. Babbles is a not for profit company that delivers a variety of sensory based workshops to learners less than five years of age.
The baby sign language course is called Baby Lingo, and it teaches parents the knowledge and skills to be able to teach their children British Sign Language so they can communicate from an early age.
The course is for eight weeks and in this parents learn how to sign basic BSL so that they can then teach their little ones how to use it.
Parents are taught basic words that children most commonly use, like milk, more, please and thank you. From this, they go on to learn more phrases. Babies start the course when they are as young as four months old.
