|Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of Abigail Stocker
Hello and welcome to TinyTalk Leicester!|
My name is Abbie and I have been signing since my daughter, Amelia, was 6 months old. 4 weeks and 1 day after we went to our first
TinyTalk class she signed "milk" for the first time. I was amazed that
my 7 month old daughter could communicate what she wanted from me. Now,
she is the proud owner of her 150 sign certificate (at 21 months old) and
has become a big
sister to her brother, Eric. He too did his first sign, “nappy”, at
7 months and by 2 years old had over 150 signs too!
When I had Amelia I decided there was no way I could go back to work and
leave her every day, so I gave up my job to be her mummy. It wasn't
until months later, when Heather was looking for a mini teacher that I
jumped at the opportunity and a couple of years later took over TinyTalk Leicester from her. I now have the chance to work with my
children, helping others to have the wonderful relationship we have
thanks to baby signing.
The youngest signer so far in my classes has been 14 week old. He has attended classes from being 7 weeks old and started by signing "milk", he's now up to 50 signs at 20 months old! It just goes to show that they are always taking everything in around them and how the classes are there to enable you to sign at home and in everyday life.
