Child: Come visit us at

Rachel: Hi. I'm Rachel Coleman. When my sister, Emilie, and I began creating "Signing Time!", we wanted to share the language of my daughter, Leah, who is deaf, with our family and friends, and to make a fun way for all families to communicate with their infants. Since then, we have been overwhelmed by the positive response to the first 6 volumes of "Signing Time!". Families and professionals everywhere has seen first hand the benefits of signing with all children. We're thrilled to know that so many families and educators are using "Signing Time!" to teach sign language, not only to infants and toddlers, but to preschool and school aged children as well. Children who've already developed speech are learning ASL as a hands-on second language. The multisensory approach, visual, auditory, tactile of "Signing Time!" reaches all ages and diverse learning styles and abilities. Children with special needs, such as speech delays, autism, down syndrome and other challenges may have difficulty with speech. "Signing Time!" has been instrumental and making the miracle of two way communication possible for many of these children, while at the same time, making sign language so much fun. There are lots of ways to use "Signing Time!" at home, or in the classroom. For some fun ideas, and to download your "Signing Time! Success Guide", visit Make sure to register on our site to receive notice of new products, events, and special offers. And while you're there, we would love to hear about your family's experience with "Signing Time!". From all of your friends at Two Little Hands Productions, thank you for signing with us.
