Open a whole new world of communication for your baby or toddler! Baby and toddler sign language is a fun, educational way to for you and your baby to communicate. Research has proven that children as young as 6 months old can process visual language, often repeating back and responding in sign language long before they can verbalize.
Classes are designed to learn and practice signing in a fun and interactive way. Participants will learn the signs for popular foods, family members, play time and feelings.
What are the benefits of teaching babies to sign?
- Fewer tantrums! Sign language provides a way for toddlers to express their needs and wants before they are able to speak them
- Promotes bonding. Signing with your baby or toddler creates a unique bond emotional connection due to increased communication
- Boosts brain development. In a study by the National Institute of Health, hearing children who had signed as infants scored an average of twelve points higher on IQ tests than non-signing children.
- It’s just fun!
