I am a certified Speech Language Pathologist with a B.S. in Psychology from Union College and an M.S. in Speech Language Pathology from Teachers College, Columbia University. I spent the last 7 out of 10 years working with children. I have a solid understanding of typical language development in babies and children and am very skilled at finding ways to elicit communication. While I did use sign language to supplement my practice, it was not until October 2000 when my older son was born, that I really understood the power of sign language. My son was born with a profound hearing loss and had little benefit from hearing aids. We used sign language to help him communicate. He signed his first word at 6 months "dog". He quickly added "mommy", "daddy" and "more" to his vocabulary and by 1 year, he was combining two word phrases. His vocabulary far surpassed any of his hearing peers at the same age. Now he is four years old and still uses sign language to communicate his needs and wants even though he hears using a cochlear implant. He never experienced the type of frustration that many children face in light of communication difficulties because he always had a means of communicating... he used his hands to speak. Our second child was born with normal hearing. We began signing with him from birth and at 7 months, he signed "more" and "daddy" for the first time. For the next 3 months, he "watched" and at 10 months of age, his language exploded. His earliest signs included "milk", "dog", "eat" and "come and play". By one year of age, he signed over 50 words and at 15 months he has nearly a 100-word vocabulary. His communication abilities far exceed his non-signing peers. His ability to demonstrate comprehension and tell us things he wants has helped shape his even-tempered and happy disposition. Sign language has enabled me to communicate with both of my children, have them communicate with each other and in the process is helping us raise two bright and beautiful boys.
By combining my strong developmental background though my experience as a Speech Language Pathologist with my teaching and signing experience, in addition to my passion and drive to integrate sign language into childrens daily lives, I have been able to create one-of-a-kind curriculum for babies, children and adults of all ages and all abilities.
