I started baby signing when my eldest daughter was around 7 months old and she signed her first sign at 11 months then by 18 months she was signing and saying 80+ signs. When her little sister was born she helped us with baby signing and at 6 months our second daughter was signing milk, now she still enjoys signing for fun though we find like many children who experience baby signing her speech is very developed for her age so she no longer needs to. This is her on the right signing pig. We have benefited as a family from signing as it has allowed us to better communicate with our children and to be relatively tantrum free as they have been able to tell / sign to us their needs.
I enjoyed TinyTalk baby signing so much I bought the franchise when Ali decided to move on. TinyTalk classes are so much more than just baby signing alone, they are fun and interactive plus you really do get the chance to meet like minded parents who want to connect with their children.
TinyTalk classes start with ½ hour of singing and signing to popular nursery rhymes and action songs with sensory items to enhance communication skills such as bubbles, sensory balls, peek a boo scarves, mirrors and much more! We also have instrument time & signed book weeks. This is followed by ½ hour social time which is equally important, a chance for the adults to chat and relax with refreshments and a chocolate biscuit (or two!) while the children socialise and play with toys. This is also the perfect opportunity to ask questions or for new signs. Please note classes at Eddie Catz include one hour of free play in the their centre and provide cafe facilities.
Our Toddler classes are similar but there's a shift in focus to Speech, Language, Development and Understanding. Seeing how the toddlers develop is absolutely wonderful, and you don't need to have signed previously with your child to join these classes.
