Infant and Toddler Sign Language
Workshops are geared to parents, caregivers, and educators of hearing preverbal children. Research and experience show that signing babies actually speak earlier, have higher IQs and larger vocabularies, and show increased self esteem. American Sign Language skills, 200 – 250 signs, techniques for teaching preverbal children sign, and tips for successful application to home, daycare, and classroom environments are addressed.
Leann Sebrey RN is our instructor. She is nationally recognized as a member of Sign with your BABY Presenters’ Network, and has lectured throughout the country. Leann is fluent in sign, ASL her second language since the age of six. She is the mother of four wonderful children and is pictured with son Sean, who at 17 months of age has a vocabulary which includes approximately 100 signs. Leann and Patrick Sebrey now present Infant & Toddler Sign Language Workshops throughout New England and the east coast islands. Feel free to contact The Hilltop Works to arrange a program in your area or for private instruction.
