Take the guess work out of parenting and discover the joy of knowing what your baby has to say before she can talk! One of the most fundamental human desires is to be understood - help your baby communicate by teaching her baby sign language.
This app includes approx. 340 signs and over 1 hour of real life video demonstrations! The friendly presenters in the 'Baby Sign Language Dictionary' app will help you to learn to sign with your baby in an engaging and enjoyable way.
The keyword signs demonstrated in this video dictionary are based on American Sign Language (ASL). All signs have been carefully selected for their ease of use, helpfulness to carers and appropriateness for baby's interests and daily routine.
Each sign has a detailed video tutorial covering information such as: simple instructions on how to perform the sign, clever tips to help you remember the sign and practical suggestions on how to introduce the sign to your baby.
The signs are also organized into categories such as: action words, animals, daily routines, feelings and emotions, food, manners and behavior, and nature – all of which are arranged alphabetically for quick and easy searching.
To test your baby signing knowledge, the app also comes with a fun interactive video quiz that will help you learn and remember the signs. You can also mark signs as part of your favorites list.
Other key features:
• high quality graphics and videos optimized for viewing on Retina displays.
• optional setting to allow continuous play through of all signs in a category.
• swipe through the signs in a category without returning to the menu.
• optional setting to view a simplified demonstration for a sign rather than the complete tutorial.
This app makes the perfect parent's companion to the popular 'Baby Sign and Learn' animated apps (also available on the App Store). Featuring gentle guidance and practical advice, this app has been designed to help make teaching your baby to sign as easy as waving “bye-bye”!

Ratings and Reviews
Little is learning through me
This is a great app for parents (and Grampys like me) to teach their little ones ASL. I have never been introduced to ASL until we thought our grandson would possibly have a speech delay. He didn’t, but he is advanced with his language now and can sign as well. The quizzes are fun, I just wish there were more words or an exercise in stringing the signs together easier. It’s great for telling him not to do something in public without embarrassing him. Love it.
Long time user—great app as a while but the bugs need fixin
I’ve had this app for almost 7.5 years. I started out with the lite version and loved it so much that I paid to have the full app. Not only did it help me teach my baby sign, but it’s helped me to communicate with hearing impaired people as well. In the beginning this app worked just as the lite version did— all the words appeared in the dictionary so you could find which ones you were looking for. But in the past few years that has changed— there are symbols for the words but no actual word until you click on the picture. This makes it hard to find the words you’re looking for…when the words first disappeared I thought it was just a glitch. But as I sit here now on a new phone where I downloaded the most updated version of this app, that is still the case. It’s disappointing because I really liked this app and how easy it was to use but without the words appearing, it makes it so much harder to find what you’re looking for.
Great Content, Design Quirks to Work
The signs chosen to be taught in this (premium) app are all excellent choices. The videos, descriptions, and memory cues are also so well done. I love the categories so I can review/practice what is most relevant to me.
The set backs have everything to do with the design and not the content. For whatever reason, the “Name” of the sign does not display in the list. I thought this was a bug. I deleted and re-downloaded the app but then it didn’t save my purchase. I DID re-purchase it because I liked it that much, but the bug still exists. This makes it hard for me to quickly find the word I want to learn or need to remember because I only have a tiny symbol to illustrate the whole sign. Additionally, none of the links in the app work for me.
