Monta Briant began signing with her daughter when she was six months old. The family eventually learned hundreds of signs together and Monta was so moved by the ability to communicate effectively with her daughter that she found herself telling it to anyone who would listen! She soon started Baby Sign Language Workshops and is an enthusiastic speaker and self-proclaimed 'baby sign language evangelist'.
