Sign language education for infants, toddlers, and beyond -- serving the Huntsville, Alabama, area
My passion is to introduce people to the joys and the benefits of using American Sign Language (ASL) signs with children of all ages. I offer classes and training for parents, families, childcare providers, and children.
What Others Are Saying About Sign Language Training Provided by Gina Lewis:
"I really enjoyed the interaction with the kids in class. Also, the songs went great with all the signs. I would definitely recommend this class to a friend. I myself learned a lot and it taught me how to teach my child at home. I am interested in a level 2 class in the future."

"Thank you so much for giving us a tool to use until the words come, we have had a blast in your class! We are very interested in the Sign with me part II class..."
