Signing Smart Workshop for Long-Term Learning
(ideal for parents/caregivers of talking toddlers and preschoolers)
Saturday, June 27 ~ 9:00 AM - Noon
(includes a copy of Signing Smart with Babies and Toddlers: A Parent's Strategy and Activity Guide by Michelle Anthony MA, PhD and Reyna Lindert PhD, handouts, and shipping.
Are you ready to support your talking toddler or preschooler in better understanding the world around him or her while also encouraging spoken language use self-regulation? Signing Smart is for you!
This 3-hour workshop is not about learning lots of new ASL vocabulary (though you will definitely learn some), or "getting" our kiddos to use signs. The bigger focus is on using the signs that we know
(however many that is) in ways that will create a deeper bond with our child(ren) while supporting their spoken language development, cognitive development, and conceptual understanding - skills that are far more powerful than the signs themselves!
Whether you never signed with your baby, signed and stopped once spoken language took over, or still sign, this workshop will teach you new ways to interact with your child to strengthen your bond while support language, cognitive, and conceptual development.
Signing Smart "at the Zoo"

We can't visit the zoo in person right now, but we can still talk about all the animals we might see there!
This 2-part class provides a playful environment where parents or caregivers and their children learn ASL signs and research-proven Signing Smart strategies while playing and interacting. It's the perfect opportunity to start signing or keep up with what you've learned in a way multiple aged siblings can enjoy!
Activities include gross and fine motor play suggestions, singing, singing, and much more!
These developmentally-based activities help to foster intimacy and communication between infants/toddlers/preschoolers and their parents by facilitating both linguistic and cognitive development, building conceptual understanding, memory, and vocabulary.
The classes are great for families new to signing as well as those who have started and are looking for support and connection with other signing families.
