Workshops

Baby Sign Language – 10:30 AM

with Bill White, Touch Blue Sky

Stop guessing what your baby is trying to tell you and start spending more time fulfilling your child’s specific needs. Baby Sign Language gives babies the opportunity to communicate long before babies can verbalize their wants and needs. Signing with babies accelerates language development, reduces frustration, and deepens the bond between parent and child.

Touch Blue Sky’s baby sign language program is based on American Sign Language (ASL) and is designed for parents with babies who range in age from birth to 18 months. Fun activities and songs will show you how easy it can be to integrate baby signs into your daily routine and jump-start your child’s verbal skills. Babies are welcome but not required to attend.

Bill White, director of the baby sign language program, received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychobiology from University of California, Santa Cruz.  He currently is facilitating baby sign language programs at Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, DayOne Center, Babies And Moms, and The Parks and Recreation Departments of Menlo Park, Palo Alto, and Redwood City.  Bill is passionate about the benefits of signing with babies and is the proud father of two hearing sons who both sign.
