Free Intro Workshops & Discounted Classes To WeeHands Towson

My introduction to baby sign language was one that most of us probably shared. In 2004's Meet the Fockers, Robert De Niro's character, an anal ex-CIA agent, teaches his grandson to sign with hopes of producing a baby genius.

Since then, the technique has boomed. Sign language for babies and toddlers is no longer regarded as something only over-zealous parents would entertain, but rather the mainstream. It's become a fanastic way to teach young children to communicate before their speaking skills are honed.

Long before your baby can speak, she has the ability to understand speech and wants to communicate with you. In fact, babies can sign back by 8-12 months of age! This style of communication is also great for toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Interested? Check out WeeHands! In a WeeHands baby sign language class, you and your family are taught by a qualified instructor to use American Sign Language signs, songs and language development strategies with your little one!

If you're not sure sign language is right for your family, WeeHands is holding two free 45-minute introductory sessions in Towson at which you can sample the program and ask any questions you might have:
