Infant-Toddler Sign Language Classes to enhance communication skills between parents and children using American Sign Language. The use of sign language with children helps foster early communication, language growth, increased vocabulary, motor skill and brain development and more. Research shows that infants and toddlers who use signs can express their feelings and learn to talk sooner. This class is for any child; speech delayed, hearing impaired, hearing, and health conditions or impairments. Monday mornings at 9:00 a.m.
