Presented by Toni Robertson, Quality Improvement Facilitator
Let’s discover how the use of American Sign Language can redefine your child care program. Young babies 6-8 months old will have the opportunity to communicate their needs to you. Young children not yet speaking can sign what they want.
Even the older preschool and school-age children can benefit by learning another language. If you provide the platform for them to experience this beautiful language of the deaf community in your child care setting, true communication CAN begin in your program at a very young age. Over one hundred “SIGNS” will be taught at this workshop. Signs will include: Colors, animals, foods, things, activities, and more.
Benefits of Sign Language with Babies:
- Allows two-way conversations
- Reduces frustration from misunderstandings
- Increases eye contact and concentration
- Strengthens small muscle development
- Aids in the bonding process
