Start with Baby Sign Language Basics ™
Baby Sign Language Basics™ is our class for babies and parents who are new to signing, who’s babies still have less than 4 working signs. Baby Sign Language Basics™ consists of 12 weekly parent-child classes, including a weekly parent lesson on signs and strategies, individualized support, and engaging baby/ toddler participation activities involving both group and one-on-one interaction. Each week, families will learn both signs for daily routines, and signs for fun things babies are very motivated to communicate about. The class is offered as two 6-week segments, and families may start in either session A or B.
Then graduate to….. Sign, Sing, and Play™!
Sign, Sing, and Play™ is our more advanced class, for babies/ toddlers 12 months and older, who already have at least 4 working signs. This is the perfect class for those families who have the hang of the signing thing, and want to continue to expanding vocabulary through fun activities enriched with sign language. The more advanced class teaches additional signs, but does not provide basic instruction on how to sign with babies. There is also more social time to get to know other families. More abstract concepts are introduced, including introduction of more adjectives and verbs, manners signs, more animals, signs for outdoors and family outings, and seasonal and holiday themes.
It is recommended that families attending the advanced class be either be graduates of Baby Sign Language Basics™ or have learned at home via Baby Sign Language Basics books or video home learning course. However, the primary sign of readiness, is the baby having 4 working signs and be at least 12 months of age.
