This workshop, based on American Sign Language, makes teaching your baby sign language fun by using songs and activities you can incorporate into your day with baby. Learning sign language helps your baby communicate with you about their needs and decrease their frustration. Years of research have shown that babies who use sign language develop verbal language skills sooner than their peers and develop a comparably larger vocabulary. The ideal time to begin Baby Sign Language is when your baby is 4-6 months of age and can be taken up to around 18 months when baby starts talking. Recommended, but not required, before taking the six-week Sign Language series.
