A digital collection of teaching aids designed to provide stay-at-home moms, introverts, and highly sensitive parents the resources needed to learn baby sign language from the comfort of home.
As a stay-at-home mom and fellow introvert, I appreciate the need for high-quality (and budget friendly) resources. I created this program to make learning baby sign language smooth & effortless for new moms like you.
“What a great program!!! I just finished the first lesson… it only took about 5 minutes and the sheets are so helpful!
-Jenev C. (Adventures In Baby Signing Student)
“Having your daughter show the sign is especially helpful! Kids don’t always make the sign as clearly or perfectly as your instructions – it gave me a sense of what to look for.”
-Betsy O. (Adventures In Baby Signing Student)
Baby sign language is an essential early communication & language building tool for all new parents, but especially if…
- You want your child to be able to share their thoughts and feelings with you, 1-2 years before they learn to talk.
- You’d like to give your non-verbal child a ‘voice’ so they can communicate without crying, whining or tantrums.
- You want to address your baby’s needs quickly (helping you both feel happier and less frustrated throughout your daily activities)
- You want mealtimes to go more smoothly (rather than struggling to get your child to eat)
- You’d like to the opportunity to ‘peek’ inside your baby’s mind as they are exploring the world around them (you’ll be surprised at what your baby chooses to share with you!)
- You want to build a strong healthy bond with your child.
- You want your child to develop self-confidence and feel more secure about their place in the family.
- You’d love to jump start speech and help your child develop a larger spoken vocabulary. (Fun fact! Signing children typically speak sooner than non-signing children, AND develop a larger spoken vocabulary early on.)
If any of these apply to you, you need this program.

Meet Your Baby Sign Language Teacher’s
Hey I’m Marcie, So nice to meet you!
We really don’t know one another, but I sure hope we’ll get to.
That’s me, and my two daughters: Michaela & Amber. We are the founders and creators of the Adventures In Baby Signing classroom.
I want you to know that I’m not extra special. When my first daughter was born, I had never signed with a baby before either.
After discovering what works, I created a program that breaks the steps down very simply, in a way that works for busy moms!
This system was built on my background in American Sign Language and my 5 years experience signing with both my daughters.
Nothing in this program is theory or complicated. I share with you the exact sign language methods I used that allowed my daughters to communicate with me, starting when they were 8 months old.
“And the best part? We never really went through that terrible-two stage because my daughters could almost always communicate what they wanted, using words they could either say or sign.”
Understanding what your baby wants, doesn’t have to be so complicated.
Enroll NOW to connect & communicate with your baby in the same (amazingly fun) relationship-building way.

How does an online classroom work? Do I get stuff in the mail?
My courses run solely over the internet – you’ll receive course materials as online videos, audio files (MP3′s) and ebooks (PDF’s). You can access them online, download and use them on your computer, or print them. You will need to have at least basic computer and internet skills, and internet that is faster than dial-up speed. These e-courses are not available by print over snail mail.
Who is this course for?
This course is ideal for parents, grandparents or other caregivers who are new to baby sign language and are ready to start right away. You are a stay-at-home mom or the primary caregiver. Your hearing baby is between 4-12 months. It is also a great resource for pre-school teachers and day-home providers wanting to introduce basic sign language skills to students. YOU are the best person to teach your baby sign language and this course will give you everything you need to succeed.
I’ve heard baby sign language can delay speech. Is that true?
Extensive research has been done and I’m happy to report, signing with your baby does NOT delay speech! Research has shown that most children who use sign language learn to speak sooner and have a much larger vocabulary. I started signing with my daughters when they were 6 months old and they both started talking early on. And to this day, their vocabulary bank continues to amaze me.
What is the best age to start signing with my baby? … OR is it too late to start?
The ideal age to start is between 5-8 months, but it is never to early to start learning. If your baby is still young (under 6 months), you will have plenty of time to get comfortable with signing and make it a habit early on. Since you have ongoing access to the classroom you can come back later to brush up on signs you’ll need when your baby gets a little older.
If you have an older baby (14 months and up) and are just starting to realize the benefits of baby sign language, you may be wondering if it is too late to start. The short answer is NO, it’s never too late! Toddler’s know exactly what they want and get extremely frustrated when they can’t communicate their wants to you. It’s not too late if your child is not talking yet, or still has limited vocabulary.
There are several free online dictionary’s to learn American Sign Language from, what does Adventures In Baby Signing offer that free resources don’t?
I learned American Sign Language when I was 18, but had no idea that baby sign language was being used as an early communication tool with hearing babies, until I was expecting my first child. So, even though I already knew how to sign I was at a complete loss at HOW to teach sign to my baby, and WHICH signs I should teach her. Through research and experimentation, I learned what works and what doesn’t, and I created a course to help you shorten the learning curve.
Adventures In Baby Signing CLASSROOM provides you with video demonstration of each individual sign, PLUS strategy techniques so you know HOW to teach each sign to your baby. I’ve already put the pieces of the puzzle together for you and organized it in a step-by-step lesson plan that guarantees you get your baby signing back :)
I love that I can learn baby signs through video lessons (much easier than a book!), but it’s kind of a pain to log into the website when I just need to jog my memory for a sign I forgot the hand shape for.
No problem! I’ve had a professional graphic designer create ‘quick-reference posters’ for each of the 6 core lessons. Just print out your poster and hang it on your fridge for easy reference. Once you’ve watched the videos to learn the proper technique and motion, all you need is a quick glance at the poster to jog your memory.
