Signing Smart Play Class: Early Communication for Ages 6 - 24 months

This fun and engaging play class builds an ASL vocabulary while playing, singing, and exploring carefully chosen props in a purposeful way. Large group activities as well as weekly small group activity centers offer tangible strategies to teach babies how to sign back more quickly.

Play Classes are great for families new to signing as well as for those who may have already started. Come enjoy developmentally-based activities that foster closeness and communication between you and your baby. You will learn the Signing Smart Start as well as how many and which signs to use throughout your signing journey.

In our classes, you will learn how to:
*Utilize strategies and techniques to engage your baby in signing
*Recognize your baby's earliest versions of signs
*Integrate ASL into your child's long-term cognitive learning
*Make signing simple, accessible and fun!

Activities are structured to facilitate both linguistic and cognitive development, building up children's conceptual understanding, memory, and vocabulary. Play Classes are full of both useful signs as well as ones that are most motivating to your child.
