Do your LO keep on signing once they learn how to talk?

Hi Ladies,

I am founding that my LO is not signing now that he can say most of the words he needs in the daily communication. Is the same happening with your kids? What do you do to keep them signing?

my daughter likes to sign and say things at the same time, incourage them to do both m\by signing when you speak to them and expose them to knew signs, look for things w\you think might be difficult for them to say

My daughter like most started dropping signs as she learned to speak, but by simply continuing to sign she has continued as well, but just in a different way. We sign a lot of things for fun more than out of necessity. For example, one of her favorite activities is read books with me and we sign things as we go, often learning new signs. I know she loves this since I see her later "reading" and signing to her dolls or to herself.

My daughter signs less now too (22 months). I have learned some songs with signs which are fun for her. My sister works a a preschool and she teaches them to me. But, you could just insert signs you know into toddler songs. You can sign while reading together. Also, signing videos can be a great tool.

I think that if you continue signing with your toddler he is more likely to continue. But I know it is hard to remember to do that when they are talking. Good luck!
