Nadelle, since she is Deaf, will teach American Sign Language, which is different from “baby signs”. ASL is the true language of the Deaf, and the best for communicating with anyone, Deaf or hearing. The best method of teaching is through immergent signing, signing situations as they arise and themes. Nadelle will also teach you how to read and enjoy books with your young child, which helps foster a love for reading and increase vocabulary skills.
This class will focus on bedtime, bathtime, eating time, dressing time, playtime, family signs (mommy, daddy, etc.), basic home signs. It will also incorporate holidays and feelings as well.
FREE CLASS January 5th!!
Price: $100 4 week session
