Sessions A & B

Hearing children who know signs learn language almost twice as fast, and the combination of learning signs while engaging in a musical environment significantly enhances long-term learning abilities. You’ll learn the sign language teaching methods of the experts, as well as how to spot your baby’s most “teachable moments”. You’ll easily substitute American Sign Language (ASL) signs in familiar songs, improving your child’s language skills, fine motor skills, and strengthening fingers for zipping zippers and using scissors. You’ll never have to memorize a list of signs; Sign & Sing gives you the ASL signs that are most useful to you, and most interesting to your child. You’ll learn while you play, using everyday items in a natural way that is centered around your child’s normal daily activities such as eating, getting dressed, playing, and bath time.

Session B -- This follow-up session to the first introduces more signs using animals and toys as a learning theme, and delves into a deeper understanding of the Four Keys to Signing Smart introduced during Session A. With a special focus on helping children understand signs used in different contexts, the Home Materials include a children's DVD called The Treasure Chest: Signs, Songs, and Rhymes, and features mini-music videos of children singing well-loved songs using the signs - as well as showing the printed word across the bottom of the screen - giving children multiple ways to learn the words, the sign, and the language.
