Sign language has gained popularity among parents of non-deaf tots as a way to communicate with their lil ones prior to their being able to speak. It is also a great way to teach older kids about children with special needs. Introduce them to another form of communication for kids with different abilities with Bitty Braille t-shirts and onesies. The shirts (starting at $26) feature words or names in studs and their translation in hand-embroidered cursive writing. Choose from more than half-a-dozen words such as "cutie," "happy" or "buddy" or go for one with your lil learner's name for a personalized version that will help introduce the world of Braille. A portion of the sale of each shirt is donated to the American Foundation for the Blind, the national nonprofit organization that employed Helen Keller.
