Workshops offered by Little Hands for Learning
The workshops focus on simple steps parents can do to boost their child’s language development. Specifically signing, talking, reading, and moving. American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary is taught as a means of communicating with baby before they can talk, to clarify the speech of a child who has already begun speaking and as a great foundation for a second language. It will show parents how to naturally enrich early learning through everyday interactions, focusing on story time, music and movement.
Welcome to Sign Language! Tools and techniques to surviving the first 6 months.

We will cover the classic four signs; MILK, FOOD, MORE and ALL DONE in addition to about 20 more that will be helpful during this time period. This includes DIAPER, CHANGE, CRACKER, PLAY, SLEEP, BATH, ect. I will give you the tools to help recognize when your child is signing back to you. Just like in beginning speech babies first attempts at sign language are not perfect. I will also teach you the ways to incorporate the signs into everyday life seamlessly so that the learning is enjoyable and easy on you and baby.
