Ever wonder what your baby is thinking? Are you tired and frustrated trying to figure out what it is they are trying to tell you?
Did you know your baby is capable of using gestures and signs to communicate before they can talk?
Your baby has lots to tell you. Babies are born with the natural instinct to communicate with the world around them. Did you know that babies as young as 4 months old can start learning this manual way of communicating?
The benefits of signing with your little one are numerous. Research shows that sign language helps increase vocabulary, comprehension, self-confidence, decreases frustration, and creates a deeper bond between parent-child.
Come connect with your child and with other parents through this engaging, dynamic and interactive 6 week baby sign language playgroup series. Each week we will cover different themed units of vocabulary based on American Sign Language (ASL) through a fun and creative mix of signs, songs, books and play.
You will not only learn useful signs that you can immediately start implementing in your daily routines, but you will also learn strategies and techniques from a licensed speech and language pathologist for cultivating a strong foundation for communication. Come join me in this exciting adventure and walk away feeling inspired to create more opportunities to foster a strong foundation for communication and connection with your child through the use of baby sign language. Are you ready to give your child the gift of having a voice beyond words?
About the teacher
Ana Ayala, MA-CCC-SLP, is a mother of two, and a licensed bilingual (Spanish/English) Speech and Language Pathologist with a degree in Communication Disorders from Northwestern University. Although she has always been passionate about working with young children with communication deficits, it wasn’t until she saw her daughter at 15 months of age be able to communicate using over 45 signs, that she witnessed the value and magic of giving her the gift of having a voice beyond words. Sign language also helped her daughter more easily bridge the two languages that are spoken in their bilingual home.
Join this interactive 5 week series on Sundays from 9:30am - 10:30am. Cost is $200 for the series and includes both parents and one child. Registration is required, as space is limited.
