Baby Signing! with Sheryl White

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Baby sign language,developed by Dr. Joseph Garcia, gives babies and toddlers the ability to communicate their needs and wishes to caregivers without frustration, tears or tantrums. This program will help you to give your pre-verbal infant or toddler an effective way to communicate with you! Infants learn at their own pace; to start signing, an infant must be able to focus on the hand movement and have the cognitive ability to make the connection that a sign is a gesture of something needed or wanted. Other Benefits of Sign Language: Deepens bonding between you and your baby Accelerates your baby's development of speech Increases child*s vocabulary Enhances early literacy skills Allows for lower noise levels and aggressive behaviors in childcare settings Please sign up at the Youth Services Desk
