Signing Smart(R) strategies integrate more than 150 American Sign Language signs into songs, games and activities developed to engage very young children and their parents. Research has shown that using American Sign Language with hearing babies and toddlers allows communication and spoken language to happen earlier and faster, while reducing frustration and tantrums. Most children have two to three words by 12 months, whereas Signing Smart TM children typically have 25 signs and 16 words! Most children start combining words into two-word sentences by 20 months, whereas Signing Smart(R) children typically do this by 11-14 months and some as early as six months! The National Institute of Health even found a 12-point IQ increase for eight year-olds who used signs as young children. More research, class pictures and family quotes at www.SigningSmart.com

Signing Smart Increases Language!
Research demonstrates that children who participate in
just 8-10 weeks of Signing Smart programs show improved language skills by 12 months of age. Typically developing, hearing children usually have 1-2 spoken words by age 1, whereas Signing Smart children have 16 signs and 23 words!

Join us for
Teacher Training on
Saturday, September 30th 1:00-3:30 p.m.
A toddler signs BALL (and gets the ball!) and the teacher keeps
never even realizing that life-long conflict resolution strategies are being used behind her! Imagine if they could not sign/talk yet... what strategies might have been tried? Grabbing? Crying? Whining? Then the domino effect happens in the classroom. Sharing? Taking turns? These strategies
take time and patience to develop in young children.
Even asking for help, would interrupt the story!
