ITS A SIGN
Baby Sign Language Workshops and Classes by Lesa Martin, MA, CCC-A
ITS A SIGN baby sign language workshops and classes provide a fun, educational and entertaining place for learning sign language skills for use in stimulating communication with infants and young children.
You will be exposed to a new way of communicating and connecting with children that allows early expression of their ideas, questions and opinions. It is possible if we provide a method of expression. American Sign Language is a simple, fun and creative means of establishing early, effective communication with babies!
Information presented and course content is based upon Joseph Garcias book, SIGN WITH YOUR BABY. You will hear stories and see examples of babies sharing their ideas through sign language.
It is exciting and amazing when children are given this opportunity to communicate.
