Signs of Communication Part Two

Designed for preverbal babies with parent or caregiver.

This early sign language course introduces up to 100 American Sign Language signs that serve to help babies better communicate their needs while reducing both crying and frustration. In this class we will use the signs we already learned in Signing Part 1 as well as many more additional signs through songs, rhymes, games and play. This 5-week series will:

  • Demonstrate the benefits and research behind using sign language as an early form of communication
  • Teach parent or caregiver how to teach baby to sign
  • Provide modeling of proper signing by the facilitator with each pair

Next 5-Week Session:
Fridays: 10:30-11:30 am
May15 thru June 12, 2015
$125/5-week series
