Baby Sign Language
Jump-start your child’s verbal skills!
Stop guessing what your baby is trying to tell you and start spending more time fulfilling your child’s specific needs. Baby Sign Language gives parents the opportunity to communicate with children long before babies can verbalize their wants and needs. Evidence based research shows that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration and aggressive behavior, and deepens the bond between you and your child. Fun activities and songs will show how easy it can be to integrate American Sign Language into your everyday routine to jump-start your child’s verbal skills. Visit TouchBlueSky.com to find a workshop near you. Birth to 18 months.
