~Sign With Love~

Sign Language Programs for Hearing Families


Sign With Love: Baby Sign Language


Sign With Love: Baby Sign Language is a course designed for parents, caregivers and family members with infants and toddlers.   Although parents can start using signs at any time with their baby, they can expect their child to be most receptive after 6 months of age.  These classes are most appropriate for children who are between 6 months and 3 years of age.  Signs taught are developmentally appropriate for infants and toddlers and are based on American Sign Language (ASL).


The Baby Sign Language course is a series of 6-weekly interactive classes (45 minutes each).  In each lesson, you will learn approximately 15-20 signs on a given theme (90-120 signs total in the course).  Themes include:  First Signs, Mealtime Signs, Bedtime Signs, Animal Signs, Playtime Signs and Dressing Signs. You will be shown how to introduce and use these signs with your child on a daily basis and the common progression of sign reproduction in children.  During each class, activities are introduced to reinforce the signs and you will learn to sign a song and rhyme related to the theme of the lesson.  Also, during each lesson, a recommended children’s book will be read and signed to the class.  (Signing while reading books to your child is a great way to teach and reinforce the signs learned in class!).


A 3-week condensed format series is also offered.  Classes are 75 minutes in length and you will learn 30-40 signs.


Fee:  $90.00 for one adult and child

          $25.00 for each additional adult or child


Sign With Baby: Workshop for Adults


The Sign With Baby Workshop is designed exclusively for parents, caregivers and family members who are either not able to register for the six week Baby Sign Language Course OR whose babies are too young to benefit from the full series of classes at this time. 


The Sign With Baby Workshop is a 60 minute fast-paced,  informative and enjoyable program.  During this workshop, you will learn 40-50 signs relative to daily routines and play.  All signs taught are developmentally appropriate for infants and toddlers and are based on American Sign Language (ASL).  Activities are introduced to reinforce the signs and you will learn to sign a song, a rhyme and a recommended children’s book. 


In addition, the following questions will be answered:

v     When and how should parents start using signs with their child?

v     When can parents expect their child to produce signs?

v     How does the use of signs effect speech and language development?


Fee:  $50.00 for each adult

Sign With Kids: KidSign Club

Are you looking for a fun and educational activity for your older kids?  Sign With Love offers a KidSign Club to interested kids in Grades K-5 and 6-8.  Children will learn about deaf culture and how deaf people communicate using American Sign Language (ASL). 


The KidSign Club is a series of 4-weekly interactive and entertaining classes.  Each class is 1-hour in length.


Kids--What would happen if you couldn’t hear sounds?  What is it like to live every day and not hear your teacher talking or your favorite TV show?  How would you communicate with other people?  Deaf people know that spoken words do not always work for communication.  Since they cannot hear what you say, they must see what you say.  Learn how to finger spell the alphabet and the ASL signs for greetings and introductions, family, feelings, foods, animals, numbers, colors and much more!  Sign songs and play communication games!  Materials will be provided.


Fee:  $50.00 per kid

Sign With Students: Classroom Visits

Fee:  $125.00 for 1-hour presentation
