Cammy’s Lil’ Signers
Early Childhood ASL Training Workshops

Program Information
Cammy’s Lil’ Signers Presentations and workshops are designed for professional childcare providers & preschool teachers who have regular contact with young children and need training credit hours. Parents, Grandparents, and other caregivers are also encouraged to participate in our programs to learn the benefits of signing with young children. During our workshops and presentations our program will teach the skills needed to begin signing with the children in your childcare or home setting.

During our training workshops & presentations you will have the opportunity to purchase amazing supplies to use in your program. And we will also be giving away some great door prizes!

What Research shows about babys who sign...
-They Speak sooner. By age 2 signers have an average of 50 more words in their vocabulary than that of a non-signing child. By age 3 they have language skills approaching that expected of a 4 year old.
-They aren’t as frustrated because they can express themselves through sign language.
-They score higher on IQ tests
-Have a stronger bond with parents and caregivers

Why should we sign at home?
-Allows infant to communicate thoughts
-Reduces guess work of trying to figure out wants and needs.
-Accelerates language development
-Reinforces verbal language by added visual and kinesthetic emphasis to auditory input
-builds on babies’ natural tendency to use gestures(Ex. pointing to what they want)
-Helps identify injuries and pain.
