A Bond between You and Your Child through Signing
Wonder what the infant sign language hoopla is about? Sign language is used to ease communication - from basic everyday needs to introduction of language.
Research proven - hearing children of deaf parents have ease of communication before they can speak. Using sign language is does not prevent a child from the ability to speak.
Language/Sign building skills start with three most common signs "MILK", "MORE" and "EAT" and grows towards sentences such as "MORE EAT", "I'M HUNGRY" or "KNEE HURTS".
The parents will learn how to sign, apply them and teach their infants/toddlers in turn.
Joanna Witulski - lifelong Northwest Indianan. Married to Don and have two beautiful children, Luke and Genevieve.
Bridget Krol - signer for 5+ years, married and mother to four children who learn and use sign language.
