Starting the Sign for “More”

  • The sign for “more” is tapping your finger tips together in a group
  • This sign can be used in many activities at home including:
    • Play Time (more blocks, more bubbles)
    • Meal Time (more bite, more drink)
    • Any interaction with your child that would include requesting
  • At first, your child may not spontaneously use this sign. Instead, put your hands over theirs and “help” them make the sign.
  • Keep your language very simple.  Don’t use 10 words when 3 will do.
  • Always use the spoken word along with the sign.
  • Always reward your child for using the sign (verbal praise, another bite, etc)
  • Be consistent with when you use the sign.  If you use it with meal time, ALWAYS use it with meal time.
  • Make it FUN!!
