Parent/Baby American Sign Language Class at Cupertino Library
Babies can communicate through gestures long before they are able to speak. Through the use of signs, a parent and a child can exchange wants, needs and emotions; communicating with their child at a very early age. Learning American Sign Language enhances the acquisition of speech and lanuages as the child develops putting spoken words to their sign vocabulary.
The Cupertino Library is offering a three week series of Parent and Baby American Sign Language classes. June 4th, 11th and 18th; 2:00 pm in the Children's Storyroom
Each class will include instruction, along with practice and playtime.
