Hi! My name is Rachael Neeser and I am a Baby Signing Time Academy Instructor. Like many of you who are interested in baby signing, I started signing with my daughter when she was just an infant. As a first time mom, I was struggling to communicate with her. I had no idea when she was hungry, when she was full, when her diaper needed to be changed, and the list goes on and on. I found out about Signing Time from a friend on Facebook and I figured I would give it a try. I never imagined signing would change my life the way that it has. Communication with my daughter was almost immediately easier. She could sign to me when she was hungry, when she wanted milk, when she was full. I'll never forget the first time she signed bird in the country farm store while looking at chickens, I was amazed. My daughter"s vocabulary still amazes me and there is no doubt in my mind it's because I signed with her so early. I'm currently working on my prerequisites for the sign language interpreter program at Spokane Falls Community College. I've taken American Sign Language 121 and will be taking more ASL classes in the near future. So you can rest assured that not only am I a certified Signing time Instructor, I'm also continuing my education in American Sign Language. So your child can continue to learn right along with me.
Are you new to Baby Sign Language or have you already been using it with your child? My classes are perfect for any child under the age of 5 and any level of ASL.. Our classes are structured to be fun for your little ones, they won't even know they are learning second language. There will be lots of singing, dancing, craft activities, reading, and of course signing for you and your little one. Classes are roughly 45 minutes to 1 hour and are held once a week. The whole program is 16 weeks, but will be split up into 4, 4 week courses. Curriculum will always be changing, so if you sign up in middle or end of the 4 session program, rest assured you won't miss anything and we can just get you into the weeks you missed to make sure your child learns all the signs in the program. .
Each 4 week session is $35 and includes all materials, and craft supplies used in class. For $15.00 you can add the digital download of the DVD that corresponds with your class session.I will email this to you as soon as payment is made. The digital download can be uploaded on any of your devices and is a great way to practice all the signs learned in your session.
