Ages newborn – 12 months

Have you ever wondered what your baby was trying to say?  By learning to sign with your baby you might find out!   Babies can learn to use sign well before they can learn to speak as the coordination of their hands develops earlier than that of their mouth.  Research shows that babies who learn sign language have superior language and literacy skills as well as reduced frustration and temper tantrums.  In the WeeHands course, you will learn everyday signs and songs through fun and
motivating language-based activities.

Sharon Weisz is a Speech-Language Pathologist who runs a private practice, called “Toronto Speech Therapy”.  She received her Masters in Clinical Science in 2005 from the University of Western Ontario. Sharon has always been fascinated by sign language and studied American Sign Language for two years at York University.
