Relax & Sing Baby Signing is, without a doubt, the most joyful part of my week. Many of the parents who attend my Edinburgh classes have been coming for over a year. I know I am biased but, honestly, I am certain you will love leading this class.”ONIE, relax and sing baby signing trainer
What is Baby Signing?
Babies instinctively use actions to communicate. Signing is a wonderful way to encourage that instinct by teaching baby signs for words, before they are able to talk. Baby Signing is widely recognised by speech and language experts as helping to encourage speech development.
The Baby Signing sessions are essentially a music class with the added bonus of the parents learning over 250 British Sign Language signs to use at home with their baby. Babies love our lively sessions with great music, puppets, and musical instruments.
It’s palpable how much enjoyment parents and babies get from these early conversations with their little ones. Not only does baby signing reduce frustration between (for both parent and baby) but learning simple signs also helps parents realise just how much their little on is actually saying! And of course, learning BSL signs means the parents are also taking home a new, useful and inclusive skill.
