Let us bring the workshop to you!

Home Setting
We bring the workshop to you! Invite the whole family. Invite the baby sitter. Invite your friends. As you and your child learn to communicate using Sign Language, you will want to encourage others who interact with and care for your child to learn what he is saying with his hands! Grandparents especially enjoy learning how to enhance communication with new grandchildren. SmallTalk Learning can bring a workshop or series of workshops to you in the comfort and convenience of your own home. Workshop hosts receive a complimentary Sign Language resource book and the opportunity to earn additional books through our host and referral programs.





Play Groups, Support Groups and Babysitting Co-ops
SmallTalk Workshops are a great way for members of organized Play Groups, Support Groups and Babysitting Co-Ops to participate in a fun learning experience together. In addition, our informational presentations are a welcome solution when you are looking for a guest speaker to enhance the agenda for an upcoming group meeting.





Day Care Centers and Pre-Schools
Our adult/child workshops are a fun and useful addition to your educational curriculum and/or special events calendar. In addition, our adult-only workshops provide an excellent opportunity to fulfill teacher/caregiver continuing education goals. With the recent media attention focused on the benefits of using Sign Language to communicate with babies, more and more prospective clients will be evaluating your organization's ability to expose their children to this valuable communication tool.




Workplace Setting
Hosting a series of SmallTalk Workshop is a great way to demonstrate to current and prospective employees that your organization is family-friendly and progressive. New parents welcome the opportunity to enhance the communication relationship they share with their child. Although our workshops are designed for parents and caregivers, you'll find that other employees will be equally interested in learning Sign Language for their own enrichment.





Libraries
Enhance your community outreach effort by including a SmallTalk Workshop on your educational or special event calendar. Our workshops provide an excellent opportunity to spotlight library materials on Sign Language, parent/child communication, and multi-cultural awareness.





Healthcare Organizations
We offer a variety of services to support your community education outreach to new and expectant parents. Add a SmallTalk Workshop to your community education calendar or invite us to speak at an upcoming new mom's support group meeting. We are also happy to provide an informational overview for your child birth educators or other community outreach staff.





Service Groups, Social Clubs, Community Centers, & Churches

Workshops can be customized to reflect your child's particular interests, and the guest of honor will receive a special Sign Language book to acknowledge their special day.

Baby Showers
Surprise the parents-to-be with a gift that will make a real difference in their lives. A SmallTalk Workshop can add an educational and entertaining flair to a baby shower, while exposing expectant parents to a valuable skill that will enhance their ability to communicate with their new baby.
