A note from your instructor:
Hi, I am delighted to bring you the Baby Signs® program. Since giving birth to my second son, Geran in June of 2009, I started to teach him to sign. I was amazed at the results. At 6 months he began asking for milk, not just from me, but from daddy too! My husband experiences a close bond with him because of this early communication. His brother loves to learn new signs so he can teach his little brother. It is a wonderful family experience. With the birth of my third boy, Nashville in May, 2011, signing has exploded in our family. Geran, my three year old, loves to teach Nash new sign words.
It is satisfying to know I gave them this early start on language and vocabulary. For those of you who worry, "Will signing to my child delay my child's speech? Let me assure you that is a myth and not what we have experienced. Nashville is now 23months and talking up a storm. Signing has increase the IQ of both my boys. My 3 year old, Geran, is starting to read small words and Nashville recognizes all of his letters and sounds. Geran had approx 150 signs at 15months and Nashville had about 75 signs at 15 months. Both my boys loved signing and it helped them talk sooner and with a large vocabulary. This reduced tons of frustration and we barely saw tantrums because of signing in our home.
This program boosted their IQ and can do the same for your child. I am excited to help you reduce frustration, take away uncertainty and build confidence as a parent.
Join us in our 6 week theme-based classes... full of songs, literature, parachute play, bubbles and of course, 6 new signing words every week.
