Using Basic Sign Language with Infants and Toddlers
Teaching infants and toddlers to use sign language allows them to see, feel, and hear language. This professional development experience will guide you through the discovery of how to use sign language as a tool to promote children’s confidence, classroom management, and form connections. Participants will learn the benefits of using sign language with infants and toddlers, how to use some basic sign language, and identify strategies for implementing sign language in their classroom environment.
