Happy Baby Signs: Baby Sign Language

Jump-start your child’s verbal skills!

Baby Sign Language gives children the opportunity to communicate long before they can verbalize their wants and needs. Research studies show that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration, enhances a child’s self-esteem, and deepens the bond between parent and child.

Introductory Workshop
This workshop introduces more than 20 signs that are based on American Sign Language (ASL). It is designed for expectant parents and parents with babies ranging in age from birth to 18 months. You will learn about the latest research and all the tools to teach your baby to sign. Fun activities and songs will show you how easy it can be to integrate simple signs into your everyday routine to jump-start your child’s verbal skills.

Baby Sign Language Playgroups
Our playgroup series is a fun way to build your signing vocabulary and skills with themes like mealtime, animals, colors, family, bedtime, and more. We’ve split twelve sessions into two different six-day series. One is called Playgroup Boom and the other is called Playgroup Zoom. No need to take them in order; you can start with either Boom or Zoom. Both series include the essential basic starter signs and vary in the more advanced vocabulary. Shortly after your first six-day series you’ll be thrilled to see your baby start to sign. That’s the time to enroll in the second series to increase your baby’s vocabulary and your own signing confidence! Our Introductory Workshop is recommended prior to taking a playgroup series unless you are already familiar with ASL.

It is recommended that participants enroll in the Introductory Workshop prior to taking a playgroup series. Babies are welcome to attend but not required.
