Baby Signing Workshop

Baby signing in BaselDiscover baby signing, a wonderful way to communicate with your child, before he/she can talk!

Babies and toddlers understand a lot more than we give them credit for, but they are often held back by their physical inability to talk. However, their ability to use their hands and fingers to gesture or form signs can enable them to communicate much sooner.

Baby signing bridges the communication gap, helping babies to show their parents what they want, what they are thinking, or how they are feeling, before they can talk. With baby signing, families find that understanding and communicating between babies and adults can become easier and less frustrating.

What to expect

The baby signing class uses gestures based on British Sign Language. It is a fun, social and educational activity for babies and their parents (or any carer, as it can be shared by all members of the extended family).

We use song, rhymes, games and toys to make each session a fun moment. There are also handouts and activities at home to help parents use the signs throughout the week.

We prioritise using signs that will be useful to the family and topics that your children will enjoy – topics such as food and drink, getting up and dressed, toys and games, how we are feeling (both physically and emotionally), animals and colours.

It becomes easy to incorporate baby signing into your everyday life and to rapidly see the delight in your baby’s face as they enjoy the communication with you.
