Your Baby Can Sign
sign language classes for hearing infants

Course Description

Your Baby Can Sign Classes I & II
meet an hour a week for 6 weeks. Class I covers the basics and gets you started, while Class II gives you more in-depth information. These classes are designed for expectant parents, parents, and caregivers to bring their babies to interactive classes where they will learn songs, signs, and have fun. Basic reference materials are included in the price of the classes, but you are strongly recommended to purchase Joseph Garcia’s "Sign With Your Baby" book, DVD/video, or complete learning kit separately. The cost per family includes 1 child and 2 adults.

Your Baby Can Sign Workshops last 2 hours and are on a variety of topics. There are "beginner" workshops that cover the first half of Class I, and "topical" workshops that focus on a certain group of signs (ex: animals, toileting & diapering, aggression intervention, playtime, etc.). These workshops are designed for expectant parents, parents and caregivers to attend without their children, and each family may bring 2 participants. Basic reference materials are included in the price of the classes, but you are strongly recommended to purchase Joseph Garcia’s "Sign With Your Baby" book, DVD/video, or complete learning kit separately.

Your Baby Can Sign Free Presentations are designed for anyone who is interested in signing with pre-verbal infants. The benefits of signing with hearing children and how to make signing successful in your home will be discussed, and you will be given a few signs to start with. You will leave with a folder FULL of information about signing with infants. Presentations are meant to be attended without children.

Your Baby Can Sign Playgroups are for families of signing children to attend. There is currently a playgroup meeting weekly at the Parenting Center. If you are interested in having your OWN playgroup with family, friends, or neighbors, you need to have a minimum of 5 families. You can set up your date and time with them, provide the location, and Rebekah will come prepared with your preferred vocabulary, songs, activities, and other requests. During the playgroup you will be given suggestions about how you can use signs in your daily routines, get help with hard-to-find vocabulary words, and just have a resource person there for any questions you may have.

Your Baby Can Sign Music & Signing Sessions will be offered soon. Please contact Rebekah McNary for more information.

Private Learning Opportunities are available upon request. If you want something other than what is listed above please ask. The likelihood is that you can be accommodated. Please contact Rebekah McNary for more information.

Presenter Profile

Rebekah McNary
started working with the Deaf community in 1994 as a volunteer sign language interpreter for her church. Since then, she has earned a Certificate in American Sign Language Studies, an Associates Degree in Educational Interpreting for the Deaf, and has been working professionally as an American Sign Language interpreter since 2000. During her first pregnancy she became interested in using American Sign Language with babies and started researching Joseph Garcia’s "Sign With Your Baby" program. After using the program with her daughter for over a year, she decided it was time to share this amazing gift with others, and started "Your Baby Can Sign."
