Sign with Your Baby

Wouldn’t you love to have your child communicate with you before they have words? With Baby Sign Language it is possible. Start early so you can practice every day and soon enough your child will calm down when they see a sign...and eventually they will sign it to you!

The Benefits of Baby Sign Language

This one-time introductory workshop will give you some benefits and research in this area as well as ways to teach your baby many American Sign Language Signs. Sheryl teaching baby sign

Join Sheryl White, very experienced teacher of infant sign, baby massage, reiki and mindful parenting, for this class that will enrich your parenting experience. She has used the Sign with Your Baby program by Joseph Garcia with her own children. Sheryl begins the class with instruction detailing how to teach your baby sign language, benefits and research for caregivers. Afterwards, Sheryl brings out a bag filled with props, toys, puppets, etc. and signs with the babies. Caregivers then get a turn learning signs while interacting and engaging with babies. Classes are a feast for the babies’ eyes and they usually leave ready for a nap after all of that learning and stimulation. Some parents even report longer naps after class! Caregivers leave with handouts and armed with the tools they need to sign with their babies. This class is appropriate for babies and young children 2-months or older and pre-verbal.
