Sign Babies with Tricia
Start the Conversation!
* Sign Babies Presentation
Sign Babies presentations are free and are held across Utah County. They give an overview to expectant parents, new parents, grandparents and caregivers about how to build a special bond with an infant using sign language as a communication tool in the early months.
In an hour, you will:
-learn short and long-term benefits of signing
-receive information on how babies learn and communicate
-practice "modeling" first signs
-receive information on how to develop your skills in signing with your baby
Contact me about hosting a Sign Babies presentation in your home, community group, or church group.
* Sign Babies Workshop
Sign Babies workshops provide parents and caregivers with more sign language vocabulary to help get into the habit of incorporate signing into your daily activities and routines with your baby or toddler. Sign Babies workshops are held in two two-hour workshops a month and cover various topics such as signs for animals, colors, food, family, activities, emotions, questions, numbers and the alphabet. In the classes, we use books, songs, props and toys to create an optimal learning environment.

A little about me. . .
I absolutely enjoy teaching parents and educators to sign with their babies and toddlers! The look on parents faces after seeing their children recognized their first sign is elating and even more so when they start to actually communicate with them. I love being an instrument to help parents develop a better relationship and bond with their little ones through early communication.
I am a mother of two wonderful children (4 years and 15 months) who have both had great success in signing to communicate. My 4-year old son signed around 450 words before the age of 18 months and then began replacing those signs with verbal words. My daughter is currently signing around 160 words and LOVES books and learns more and more each day. It is so awesome to know what their needs and desires are at such an early age. Along with the confidence that grow in them knowing they are understood.
I am also and a co-host for a Internet Radio show called Babies and Moms Radio: Birth and Beyond where we talk about successes of signing and help parents overcome the challenges that arise with signing with their babies. We also talk about everything else mom and baby too! Tune in or listen to podcasts at www.babiesandmomsradio.com!!
