Welcome to the TinyTalk classes of
Therese Markham

"" *** DUE TO TIER 4 ALL CLASSES ARE BEING HELD ONLINE VIA ZOOM UNTIL AT LEAST 18th JANUARY 2021 ***

Hello I'm Thérèse your local TinyTalk teacher. I'm also mum to ex-TinyTalkers Hannah (17) and Max (12)! I've been teaching TinyTalk classes for 15 years and still love each and every class!

I first read about baby signing when Hannah was 6 months old. I thought it sounded wonderful, too good to be true
in fact, that she'd be able to tell me what she wanted before she could speak. At 15 months Hannah had a signing vocabulary of over 50 signs with favourites being milk, more, bird, rain, bath and daddy. Baby signing helped us avoid the frustration babies feel when they try to communicate and we adults are unable to understand them. She could tell me when she was thirsty or hungry or when she was tired. She could even say 'please' when she wanted something! Wonderful!! I started signing to Max when he was just 6 days old, 'milk' and 'bed' were the first signs. He initially watched with great interest and finger wiggling! It was very exciting when he made his first sign 'bed' at 8 months. By the time he was 12 months old he had lots of signs under his belt, 'daddy', 'car', 'stop' and 'food' being his favourites.

The TinyTalk Newborn Communication Workshop is a fascinating journey through your tiny baby’s world and gentle introduction to the invaluable world of baby signing. The next 6 week workshop will commence in Spring 2021. Your baby must be 12 weeks (age adjusted if prem) or under at the start of the workshop. Places are limited and subject to availability it is possible to join the workshop partway through.

TinyTalk Baby Signing classes are a fun and relaxed hour long, starting with BSL based signing and singing to well- known nursery rhymes and actions songs. The weekly sensory activities (including scarves, bubbles and much more) are designed to encourage babies development and help promote early communication. Social time follows: playtime for the babies (toys provided) and chat time for the grown ups (refreshments provided). The grown ups love the hot drink that's made for them, as well as the chocolate biscuits that are available! Social time is a great way to meet like minded grown ups and make friends.

Our Toddler Talking classes (suitable for the more mobile toddler approx 18mths +) are great fun too with lots of action songs, books, games, even a parachute! We work on speech development as well as listening skills, social skills, co-ordination, sharing and turn taking.

Please contact me to find out how you can join in with all the TinyTalk fun.
