Sign, Say and Play: A Baby Signs Program


Special Workshops

Lanterman's Koch-Young Resource Center presents Sign, Say and Play: A Baby Signs Program. Gives babies a way to “talk” with their parent - before they can talk. For parents and children birth to 3 years old to attend together, families will learn useful signs for mealtime, bedtime, bathtime, getting dressed, pets and the park. In addition, parents will learn simple ways to support their baby’s intellectual development. The first session in a six-session series starts on September 7, 2017.
