Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Helen Reeves-Howard

"" Hi, my name is Helen Reeves-Howard. I am a TinyTalk teacher based in High Peak and Leek area and run classes in Buxton, Whaley Bridge, Leek, Matlock and Ashbourne.
I have been involved with baby sign and TinyTalk since attending classes with my own little boy. I found the classes became the highlight of our week and we would both look forward to them. After developing a burning passion to share this fun and invaluable resource I found myself in
the fortunate position of being able to take on the existing classes in Buxton and Whaley Bridge; and adding Leek to the repertoire.
I am a Mummy to three wonderful children with a rather large age gap. My first two children are 19 and 17 respectively. I remember only too well the frustration as my little ones tried to make their needs and wants known, but not being able to form the words. TinyTalk was not around while they were tiny. However, with my younger son who is currently 2 and a half years old, I have had none of the frustrations seen in the older two. He is very proficient at making his desires known. He first signed Milk consciously and in context at around 6 months. It is a magical moment when your tiny baby can tell you “I would like … please Mummy”.
Baby Sign has been proven to help develop communication skills and cognitive function. However, it is not all about science and learning. The classes run in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We encompass playing, singing and sensory play to provide valuable time spent with your little one. At the same time, we also value the social time the parents/carers enjoy in classes. Lifelong friendships have been forged over tea and biscuits at TinyTalk, and long may it continue.
I love being able to pass on this wonderful skill to other parents. Never underestimate the ability to communicate with your child, and the benefits and joy it can bring. Come and join in and meet other parents. My classes are relaxed and most importantly fun! I'd love to see you there.
