Sounds great! We started signing with our dd at 15 months and by 18 months she knew 250 signs, it was her only form of communication. We are dealing with autism now and selective mutism but she speaks great at home, and is understandable. I am sure she will catch on quick!

It's a 12 week program that includes 4 therapy sessions for Ella but also 3 90minute sessions with just the therapist and myself alone. After that they said they would evalute her and either do weekly or bi-weekly sessions. She said that they don't see this age at all and she's not sure what the therapist will want to do. So I'm not entirely sure right now. But after 12 weeks she'll be 18.5 or 19 months. I'm going to start baby signing now too. They asked me how she asks for things and gets me to understand what she wants and I told them she relies on me reading her mind
It's true. I can read her so well TG! She'd be up the creek if I didn't.
