Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Rebekah Stone

"" Hello, my name is Rebekah and I am your TinyTalk Baby Signing teacher for Brighton and Hove.

I am mum to Eve, aged 9 and Heidi, aged 6. I discovered the fun and excitement of signing when I booked Eve (age six months) onto a signing course with her daddy. As a working mum from early on, signing was a way to bond with Eve when I was at home. One of Eve's first words around twelve months
old was with its sign 'bird': Eve was sitting at the breakfast table, gazing out of the french windows, she pointed, then signed and said "birdy". It was a proud moment indeed: one of those warm-your-heart moments.

With my youngest daughter, Heidi I knew the value of signing early on and started when she was two weeks old: signing 'change' and 'nappy' whenever she was having her nappy changed. With reusable nappies, that was quite often. Heidi made many attempts to copy my signing, it was when she was around five months old that she had the comprehensible dexterity to do so. By twelve months Heidi was signing about fifty signs and by eighteen months she had a strong 100+ signs in her vocabulary.

To this day we continue to use some of the core signs when verbal communication fails (e.g. at distance or separated by glass): drink, food, you ok?, come here, hi/bye,sorry, car and home.

TinyTalk classes are an hour long and great fun! Classic nursery rhymes are an easy way to learn signs, such as: See the Little Rabbit Sleeping; Row, Row, Row Your Boat; and The Wheels on the Bus. Songs are integrated in a fun way, with a bit of gentle bouncing and play. Each week core signs are introduced that are relevant to the family setting, including: mummy, daddy, food and milk. Core signs can ease communication frustration before little ones can talk. Communication skills are developed through sensory activities including: eye tracking with bubbles; objective permanency by hiding behind voile scarves; cognitive development using tactile rubber shapes; and many more!

The second half of the class is a great time for everyone to recharge with refreshments, chat between carers, and play with the plethora of toys provided.

Try a class before joining, even join the waiting list. Get in contact. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
