Learn to use American Sign Language for early communication and long-term learning with hearing infants or toddlers. Through play, activities, songs, and games, you and your child will be given the tools to communicate months earlier and with a broader, more extensive vocabulary than with spoken words alone.

In each workshop, the students will learn 30-40 signs, the signs to a related and familiar song for each topic covered, and will play a game to reinforce the signs they just learned.

Especially recommended for parents with infants approaching 6 months through the middle of the 2nd year. Many parents find the content useful until their child reaches spoken language fluency, which is typically 2.5 years or older.

Registration costs $40 for the first adult, $35 for the 2nd, and $20 for additional family members. Registration includes booklet of signs covered and tips for incorporating sign language at home.

The Tiny Fingers program was developed by Eileen Ladino, a sign language interpreter and certified teacher of deaf and hearing children with over 15 years of teaching experience.
