Signing opens up a wealth of communication and benefits for babies even before they are capable of speaking. It increases your child’s reading and spelling skills and even IQ!
We teach signing to all of our children, Infant II through Toddlers.
Research shows that learning to sign has significant benefits! Sign language provides the ability to communicate earlier than speech. Babies soon discover that sign language is more productive than crying or whining. Earlier communication can decrease tantrum behavior. Feelings of anger due to an inability to communicate may not occur as often. Teaching sign language to your child may increase your child’s vocabulary and language skills. The ability to sign basic words could prove helpful in boosting communication. Teaching sign language to your child may increase your child’s visual attention skills and joint attention skills. It may also facilitate the acquisition of verbal and written forms of communication later on.

Besides all the benefits related to Mental Math enables the child to understand the concepts of arithmetic calculation early on. This for later academic achievement and, therefore, boost up their confidence.
Arithmetic fluency, the speed and efficiency with which correct solutions to numerical computations are generated, is thought to represent a scaffold upon which higher-level mathematical skills are built.Initially, students rely on counting aloud and finger counting. These explicit procedures are gradually replaced by more efficient strategies, such as the retrieval of solutions from memory.This shift toward memory-based calculation is a hallmark of successful arithmetic development and the goal of our mental math program
