There are few things in life more satisfying than communicating and being understood! Welcome
Children love sign language! School-age kids think it is a secret code to unlock, preschoolers embrace signing with the same enthusiasm reserved for treasured finger plays, and many babies born today will learn to sign before they can talk.

It is widely accepted that young children have a strong capacity to learn more than one language, and American Sign Language is no exception. Sign Language has been shown to strengthen fine motor skills, boost literacy skills, and stimulate the creative centers of the brain. More importantly, Sign Language is something that kids simply enjoy learning!

The Story Time with Signs & Rhymes picture book series is a great place to start if you are interested in signing. Visit the companion website of author Dawn Babb Prochovnic to learn more.

Looking for Sign Language classes? SmallTalk Workshops can support your interest in developing an introductory vocabulary in American Sign Language. The learning environment is designed to be fun and engaging for adults and children alike. Each workshop incorporates familiar songs and rhymes so you can practice what you have learned while you playfully interact with your child!

We encourage you to browse this site and the Class and Event Schedule on the blog to find out about upcoming appearances.

Please contact us if you need more information or would like to schedule a private workshop, personal consultation or author visit.
