I am a former Kindergarten teacher, licensed as an elementary teacher in the state of Indiana. I have taught Spanish Immersion where I used signing to help my students learn a second language.
We use only ASL (American Sign Language) signs, not made up signs! Did you know that other programs that teach you and your baby to sign, use mostly made-up signs? They think that it doesn't matter that your baby's signs will not be understood by other people. There are, of course, many benefits to using ASL with your baby.
We are a locally owned, mother-run business! We appreciate your support!
Weve been certified by a major, national company called Sign With Your Baby Â®. This included a rigorous application process including background checks, reference checks, and certification of formal ASL training.
Weve been formally trained, not only in teaching baby sign language, but also in ASL. Weve both taken classes at the Indiana School for the Deaf.
Were not only trained to teach baby sign language, weve taught our own babies to sign. We know what were doing! We use all of our first-hand knowledge of babies and sign language, and pass it on to you in our classes.
We schedule classes at times and places that are convenient to you! We try hard to schedule classes at times that are most convenient. We offer morning, evening, weekday and weekend classes and workshops in Indianapolis. We can even come to your home!
We offer toddler classes so that you and your child can continue to learn new signs, even after your child is speaking.
