Sign Language for Budding Babies I & II: These classes are 6 week, 60 minute classes created for parents/caregivers and babies (6 months to 36 months). In a playful, language-rich, educational environment, parents, caregivers and children will build their American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary through interactive games, songs, instruction and storytelling. Learn signs that will help you develop a system of communicating with your preverbal infant, and, if incorporated into your daily routines, will empower your child to express his/her needs and therefore significantly reduce frustration. Parents will also have the opportunity to connect on a deeper level with their child and build supportive relationships with other caregivers journeying down the road of signing. Deaf culture will also be discussed. Beginners’ classes and advanced classes are available.

*Fee is $99 for a 6 week class per parent/child couple, (fee may vary depending on class location). Fees are subject to change.

These in-home classes are designed to fit your needs, your goals, and your schedule. I can teach the pre-designed 6 week class to you and your family or we can design the class according to your goals. If you have a group or you'd like private instruction and would like to meet at your location, then you can host an in-home or on-site workshop. This is also a wonderful option for moms' clubs, playgroups, and childcare centers. To arrange an in-home or on-site workshop please contact me. I'd be glad to work with your family individually or with a group to assist you in acquiring an ASL vocabulary and implementing this vocabulary in your daily routines.

Designed for the parents on the go, this workshop will teach the same information as the 6 week classes but it will be condensed into one three hour session and will focus on teaching the parent in a classroom setting. We will discuss the research supporting the SIGN with your BABY® method, helpful tools and techniques of teaching, and the best time to start signing. Over 50 signs will be introduced.
