Live Online Baby Sign Language Classes

Jump-Start Your Child's Verbal Skills!

Baby Sign Language gives children the opportunity to communicate long before they can verbalize their wants and needs.  Research studies show that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration, enhances a child's self-esteem, and deepens the bond between parent and child.

Intro to Baby Signs

This online workshop introduces more than 20 signs that are based on American Sign Language (ASL). It is designed for expectant parents and parents with babies ranging in age from birth to 18 months. You will learn about the latest research and all the tools to teach your baby to sign. Fun activities and songs will show you how easy it can be to integrate simple signs into your everyday routine to jump-start your child’s verbal skills.

About the Classes

Unless you have prior sign language experience, it is strongly recommended you take Intro to Baby Sign Language before registering for a Playgroup.

The Introductory Workshop is followed by our Six-Day Series. Build your signing vocabulary with themes like mealtime signs, colors, animals, family, bedtime, and more! Eighteen sessions are split into three different six-day series named after the primary colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue. No need to take them in order. Just dive in and start learning now. We sing songs, read and sign popular board books, like Brown Bear Brown Bear and Goodnight Moon, and share valuable tips to help your baby learn more than 100+ signs! Older siblings and even grandparents love the classes. It's a wonderful way to stay in touch with your extended family every week.

We divide up into smaller groups using Zoom breakout rooms. Families have the opportunity to socialize while having fun practicing their signs with interactive quizzes and games. You're welcome to turn your own video off and simply watch and listen while you are nursing or cuddling your little one to sleep.

Note: 

Not everyone may be able to make it to all the classes. With vacations and unexpected illnesses it's rare that everyone attends every playgroup. For this reason we have formatted each hour long lesson plan to spend thirty minutes reviewing all the vocabulary that we learned the previous week. Happy Baby Signs does not offer make up classes.  ​You are welcome to bring your baby, but it is not required.

My aim is to improve perinatal outcomes and help parents and parents-to-be have a safe and satisfying birth experience.  I also believe that every birthing person who wants a doula should have access to one.  I do not wish for money to be an obstacle. Please contact me to discuss options, such as payment plans, work/trade and scholarship.
