 Baby Sign Basics

with Linda Schmackpfeffer from Tiny Hands Talk to Me

Monday, April 3rd, 6:30 - 8:30 pm 

 BABY SIGNING BASICS CLASS

 

WHO:

Any adult who cares for or works with hearing babies up to 12months old will wantto consider taking this class. Including but not limited to:

  • Expectant parents, parents, grandparents, other family members
  • Infant – toddler  childcare professionals, nannies
  • Physicians, PA’s, nurses, hospital or clinic staff
  • OT’s, PT’s ST’s…etc.

 

OBJECTIVE:

To teach adults everything they need to know, to successfully teach the hearing babies in their care, to use ASL (American Sign Language) for pre verbal communication.  At this one time- 2 hour class, participants will learn 40 “baby friendly” basic signs. But more importantly they will learn helpful teaching strategies and techniques for success.

 

WHY:

Research shows that babies who are taught a few simple ASL signs are:

  • Less frustrated and have fewer tantrums
  • Speak sooner than their non-signing peers
  • By age 2 they have significantly larger vocabularies
  • By age 3 they speak and understand at a 4 year old level
  • Have IQ’s 10-12 points higher than their peers
  • Have a jump start on language development

 This event is for adults and non-mobile babies.
