FREE DEMO CLASS
If you've considered taking a class but you'd like to get a little taste of what it would be like before you sign up, this demo class is for you!
Imagine communicating with your baby before he or she can even speak. Baby sign language reduces frustration, accelerates verbal development and strengthens cognitive skills. It also enhances child-parent bonding through time spent teaching signs to your baby.
Research shows that preverbal infants can communicate through the use of sign language long before they can verbalize their needs. We will give you the skills and knowledge you will need to communicate with your preverbal, hearing baby. So come and take a class with My Smart Hands™ and learn how to sign with your baby!

Baby Signing Tools
There are lots of tools to help you learn signs and to incorporate them into your daily routine!
Check out The Baby Signing Bible with 400 signs, and so much information on signing with your baby! http://ow.ly/qJLSW
Flash cards are also a great way to review signs or to place around the house as a reminder to keep signing!

What books are good for signing? What is your favorite sign book?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear is one that I use in class - a great book to sign along to with your child. Start by working on animals, then move to teaching colours!
