* Child’s name and age:
Everly (nearly 13 months)
We started signing with her around 6 months when we introduced solid foods, as well as with daily activities. Then we started taking your class (in November)! Yay!
* How has signing made a difference in your family?
Signing is awesome, as it give my daughter the confidence to express her wants and needs before she might be able to do so verbally. She gets so excited when we understand her and I have seen it remove frustrations and open communication for her. My hope is that signing will also help her with future communication, understanding context, and being able to effectively express herself.
I absolutely recommend my friends (and my clients!) sign with their children. It benefits them, their relationship and their development. Taking classes is a fun way to interact with others and enhance what you are already doing at home. I seriously can’t recommend it enough!

THANK YOU for sharing your story, Kim!
Just like babies crawl before they walk, they sign before they talk (pointing, blowing kisses, waving bye-bye, for example). For many children, signing is a bridge to verbal communication!
Baby Bounce & Sign Classes are full of songs, rhymes, and visual stimulation—perfect for the littlest signers, ages 4-12 months. Come connect with other parents, explore language play, and discover how easy it is to add ASL vocabulary into your day!
