An article in the Feb. 12 Anne Arundel edition mistakenly reported that the Baby Signs program for children is not based on American Sign Language. In fact, most of the signs come from American Sign Language. The others are modified either to allow babies with limited motor skills to model the signs, or so that babies can more easily relate the sign to the object or word.

The article also mistakenly identified the name of someone who joined Baby Signs more than three years ago. The company representative is Norm Laughlin, an independent district manager.

The Sun regrets the errors.
