Babies can use sign language to "talk" long before they are able to form words. Babies have lots to talk about, but their mouths and vocal tracts don't catch up until around two years old. Baby sign language helps soothe the frustration along the way.
Words by the Handful teaches American Sign Language to babies and their families. These classes draw on baby's natural language learning abilities to teach the right signs at the right time. Words by the Handful introduces signs for the key first words your child needs through songs and rhymes and familiar repetition. Join Mimi Brian Vance, teacher and author of the Words by the Handful series of children's books on signing in a relaxing and enjoyable 8 week class. You'll learn theory, practice and technique for this early education tool, while your baby just thinks it's a fun sing-along class! Reap the many benefits of signing with your precious little one, and delight in the earliest discovery of your child's "voice."
Ages 3 months - 2 1/2 years old. Tuition for Level 1 includes a booklet and DVD.
