During this 6-class series you will build a great foundation of Baby Sign Language. Each 45-min class will help you succeed on your journey of preverbal communication with your little one. We’ll begin with the basic handshapes of the alphabet and numbers 1- 10. Next we’ll cover the essential signs you need to know to reduce frustration and lessen tantrums. You’ll also learn how to incorporate signing into your daily life and to make it enjoyable for both you and your child. We will talk about sign approximations, the difference between baby sign language and ASL baby sign language, reading strategies, answer questions such as “When will my baby start signing?” and more. All will be taught through a mixture of children’s books, songs, games and discussions. Support materials will be available to take home including a binder to keep everything in. Baby will receive a certificate of completion.
