Baby Signs of the Bay Area offers sign language workshops and classes for hearing babies and toddlers - and their caregivers. Based on the fundamentals of ASL and the principles of Early Childhood Development, the Baby Signs program allows parents to communicate with their babies before their babies can speak. The Baby Signs Program reduces frustration and tantrums, promotes positive emotional development, allows babies to share their worlds, strengthens the parent/infant bond, reveals how smart babies really are, boosts babies' self-confidence, and jumpstarts intellectual development. Classes and workshops are taught by Certified Baby Signs instructors with over 15 years of experience teaching and working with babies, toddlers, and children. Instructors are also moms of signing babies. Baby Signs offers parent workshops, Sign, Say & Play Classes, and free storytime events at local venues throughout the East Bay communities of Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, Alamo, and Walnut Creek.
