Learn baby sign language in an online introductory class followed by a live online series.
Step One: Introductory Workshop
Wouldn't you like to to know why your baby is crying, what your baby wants to eat, and what's your baby's favorite toy? Think about how amazing it would be for your baby – who can't verbally speak yet – to be able to tell you where it hurts, like if she has an earache or teething pain.
We call this our introductory class but it's more like an advanced course because you'll learn more than 100 signs, all based on American Sign Language (ASL). Best of all, Baby Sign Language Instructor William White makes sign language easy to learn and fun to do.
Here's what's included in your "introductory" class:
• Thirteen fun-filled videos with games, songs, and stories that you can integrate into your everyday routines with your baby so you can start signing right away.
• Comprehensive video and photo dictionaries of more than 100 ASL signs so you can easily learn and review everything you're learning. You'll be impressed with how many signs you'll remember after taking this class!
• Access to the Happy Baby Signs online learning center for two weeks so you'll have plenty of time to learn and review to get you ready for our outrageously fun series classes!
Signing with your baby can jump-start your child's verbal skills, reduce frustrations for everybody, and build a bridge between what your baby understands and what your baby is ready to tell you.

Three different series! (The different daily themes are listed below) Our playgroup series is a fun way to build your signing vocabulary and skills with themes like mealtime, animals, colors, family, bedtime, and more. We've split eighteen sessions into three different six-day series named after the primary colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue. No need to take them in order. Just dive in and start learning now. Each series includes the essential basic starter signs and vary in the more advanced vocabulary. Shortly after your first six-day series you’ll be thrilled to see your baby start to sign. That’s the time to enroll in the second series to increase your baby’s vocabulary and your own signing confidence!

Note Regarding Screen Time: We all know by now that "screen time" is not good for babies and toddlers. However, research shows that FaceTime or Skyping with real people is not harmful because it's real people in real time actively interacting. Our live online class is not harmful. We'll be signing, chatting, and singing songs together. Babies are welcome but not required to attend. In our brick and mortar classes most parents bring their babies even though many of the little ones are napping or nursing. At this age, babies are just along for the ride. If they're napping, let them sleep.
