Classes & Workshops
Benefits of Taking Classes
• Attending classes provides motivation to continue signing each week, which increases the likelihood that you will be consistent in your efforts to use ASL with your child and thus reap the benefits.
• Parent Support: Having other parents to exchange information with and offer support can be helpful and build friendships and community.
• Having a qualified instructor to answer questions or demonstrate the correct way to do a sign can eliminate confusion and expand your signing skill.
• Having a regular occasion for quality face-to-face interaction with your child can become something you look forward to, a special family to-do!
