Hi! I am Leigh and I run Baby Signing and Toddler Talking classes in Broughty Ferry, Carnoustie, Dundee and Monifieth!
I first fell in love with baby sign language after attending TinyTalk classes with my own little one. After only1 month of classes Aria was able to successfully use her for sign (milk). Since then I have watched her grow into a confident communicator through both speech and signing. She has also drastically improved in other areas
of development all thanks to TinyTalk. I hope to bring these benefits to other families throughout Tayside and Angus.
We have multiple class options both In-Person & Online each week, giving you the choice of learning whilst at home or attending our, Covid Secure, fun in-person weekly classes. About Our Classes…
Baby Signing - Specifically designed for Babies from Birth up to 24m
In our weekly classes for Babies & their grown-ups, you will....
🌟 help your little one with key skills such as focusing, imitation, hand eye coordination, motor skills and more through sensory play & activities
🌟 learn to communicate with your baby before they can talk giving you an early insight into your little ones personality, interests and their feelings.
🌟 see your baby grow in confidence & learn social skills
🌟 learn a new life skill in Sign Language yourself while having fun & bonding with your baby
🌟 meet & get to know other lovely local mums/dads/grandparents
Toddler Talking – Specifically designed for Toddlers from (approx) 18m up to school age. In addition to the above, during our weekly (very active) classes for Toddlers & their grown-ups, you will…
🌟 build their communication skills both verbally & through using BSL signs
🌟 help our little ones feel understood and secure in their relationships with their carers, feel more confident in communicating their thoughts & needs, all of which can lead to less frustration for the whole family!
🌟 practice social skills (cooperation, sharing, teamwork, turn-taking etc), early learning (shapes, colours, numbers etc.), & develop both fine & gross motor skills.....all whilst being silly, using musical instruments & props, & generally having loads of fun!
We will have lots of fun (& educational!) activities planned...however it is NOT in the nature of a toddler to always want to comply, is it?! We understand this completely, we keep realistic expectations & gradually introduce them to transitioning from very active activities to more focussed activities, similar to a school setting (which is what we're trying to prepare them for!)
Not ready for in person classes? Don’t worry! We continue to run online classes streaming via zoom directly from our venues to your home. Allowing you to keep the atmosphere of our in person classes while feeling safe and secure at home.

I love baby signing because:It works! It also gives all children the chance to communicate and interact and it promotes deaf awareness among children.
