A 4-week sign language and literacy series. Learn American Sign Language through songs, stories and play. Go home each week with new vocabulary and new tunes to enhance communication between you and your child! Whether you intend to incorporate sign language in your life for the long term or simply during the pre-verbal/developing verbal time, watch in awe as your child discovers the world of language. See the research come to life, as music and sign language both aid in the development of language and literacy. Baby Fingers participants benefit from:

  • Vocabulary Development & Expanding communication
  • Signing Songs
  • Incorporating sign language into routines - home, family, school, community
  • Story time in sign
  • Bilingual/bicultural experience for children of all ages with varying abilities
