interesting - a child at 2 years of age isn't capable of doing something out of misbehavior or spite? HMM.

i think sign language is good generally speaking.

however, i agree with "unregistered" that i wouldn't start teaching a child sign language just because they didn't babble or use words especially if the child didn't seem upset/frustrated at their inability (IF that's what it is) to communicate. she never mentioned the child being frustrated at not being "able" to communicate. she may be very well capable of communicating and just isn't ready to talk - i wouldn't teach her sign language at this point to prolong that behavior.
