Q: I've heard that teaching your baby sign language can cause a speech delay when they become toddlers. Is that true?
A: Using baby sign language will not cause a speech or language delay in your child. In many cases, sign language can promote overall language development and decrease frustration, as it will give your child a way to communicate before she’s able to use words instead of signs.
