Re: DD refuses to sign!

My kids both signed at about 11 mos, but I had done it in front of them for months and months before they started. Have you tried other signs? My dd has maybe 7 signs now, but she won't sign "cat" even though she loves cats and has done lots of other animal signs. Just one of those things, I guess. Successful signs for us, in addition to "more," have been "noisy," "fan" (that was the first one for both kids - they loved ceiling fans!) and "fish."

Good luck!

Re: DD refuses to sign!

I was going to say, my DD didn't start signing until around 15 months. Now she seems to be picking them up steadily! Hang in there!

Re: DD refuses to sign!

My DD is 13 months, so maybe there is hope.

I sign more than the basics since I am studying ASL. I don't sign everything to her, but I would just like her to ask for things instead of grunting and pointing. We are getting to that phase where she gets upset if we don't know what she wants. I thought the whole point of doing sign language was to avoid some of that.

I'll keep trying.
