Course Description

This is truly a hands-on workshop. All participants will get the experience of signing over 15 songs and learn how to incorporate signs in various games and stories that they can use with their children immediately.
American Sign Language is a visual language that has many signs that look like the word they are representing. It has been proven over and over that infants and toddlers who sign have reduced communication frustration because signing is something that is developmentally appropriate for all children. Participants will learn how to adapt the number of signs to meet their children's abilities and to feel comfortable with their own abilities. In addition, we will provide suggestions for storytelling and games that can be played using ASL.
Attendees will receive a handout that includes a resource list, the benefits of American Sign Language use with infants and toddlers, why ASL combined with songs work so well with children, how to prepare for using ASL, how to be creative with the songs that you already know, and a guideline for presenting and instructing songs and games to the children. In addition, the handout will include all the words to the songs that they will be singing and a chart that includes the top signs to use with both infants and toddlers.
