About the event

Sign Language: My Smart Hands® Level 2

This is a multi-day workshop. Please ensure you are available for all the dates listed below:

8 online sessions - Tuesdays, April 16 to June 4, 2024 from time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm ( 4/16, 4/23, 4/30, 5/7, 5/14, 5/21, 5/28 & 6/4)

Sign language is a communication tool that you can actively use with preverbal and verbal babies and toddlers in your care.

 Most children begin to gesture at a fairly early age.

 We see them put their hands in the air to be picked up, point at things they want, wave bye-bye when someone leaves, and more.

 When this occurs, children quickly learn that these movements will elicit a reaction from their caregivers.

 By taking their natural gesturing to the next level, we can teach children specific signs that they can use to clearly communicate their needs.

This workshop is for participants who have completed My Smart Hands® Level 1. In Level 2,

 you will learn over 120 American Sign Language (ASL) signs to use with the children in your care and

 you will review and refine signs learned in Level 1.

 Further, in our language-rich and playful environment (yes, brew the coffee, because we’ll have a good time during our sessions together!),

 you’ll build your ASL pedagogy and communication through guided and self-directed instruction, interactive games, and songs.

NOTE: Participants will be given access to a digital version of the MSH® curriculum workbook at the start of the course and 

before the course ends, will also receive a full-colour MSH® book with a CD of the songs taught by regular mail.

  • Well-being and belonging.
