Baby and Toddler Sign Language, Free Demo Class: First Steps, Ann Arbor Community Education and Recreation.

  community member   < less

You can meet Whitney Wilkes-Krier and see how fun signing with hearing children is. It's designed for babies and toddlers from 6 months up to 3 years of age. Whitney absolutely loves teaching others about this special way of communicating with your baby or toddler and even older children. Toddlers who learn sign language can use it when verbal expression hasn't fully developed to decrease frustration in communicating with parents.
The free demo class is on Friday, September 18 from 10:00 to 10:30a and we use Zoom as our platform. Want a little hint about the class? Here's Whitney's video: https://youtu.be/WrVO8T66xS4
