Finding flexible shoes that allow little feet to move is a challenge. Walmart, Fred Meyer, & Burlington Coat Factory have moccasin like training shoes with rubber grip on the bottom designed by Trimfoot Co. After touching a lot of baby shoes my favorite are See Kai Run shoes. They are leather and have very flexible soles. If you search online I’m sure you’ll find some on sale like I did.
We work ASL into our vocabulary when speaking with our son. I learned a few signs from the ASL Browser; more, food, drink. We started using those when he began to eat solids. In January I discovered our local library has a collection of Signing Time videos. Our son enjoys watching the videos. His favorites are Leah’s Farm and Zoo Train; the ones with animals. A new sign language video dictionary, Signing Savvy, came online in January. It has a larger sign collection and videos which can be played in slow motion. You can pay for access to larger videos and more features but the free & registered access is sufficient for us.
