Class Description

Want to teach your child American Sign Language… but don't know where to start?

This course is an introduction to American Sign Language for babies and toddlers and will provide helpful hints to keep your child engaged, as well as the most important signs of learning.

Baby Sign Language gives babies the opportunity to communicate long before they can verbalize their wants and needs. Research studies show that signing accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration, enhances a child's self-esteem, and deepens the bond between parent and child.

In these 1-hour Mommy & Me ASL classes, you and your child will be introduced to more than 20 signs based on American Sign Language (ASL). Fun activities and songs will show you how to easily integrate simple signs into your everyday routine to jump-start your child’s verbal skills. You will participate in themed activities with your baby to teach signs for mealtime, animals, colors, family, bedtime, and more!
