Signing Babies and Signing Toddlers Classes in
Saint Albans, Harpenden and Redbourn, Hertfordshire
I’m Clare Banham, am married and have twin boys, Harry and Sebastian. I started signing in September 2014 taking the boys to Baby Signing classes when they were five months old. Having never done signing before, I have enjoyed learning a new skill and language while helping our children communicate their needs long before they could talk.
We continued our signing journey onto the Signing Toddlers class, which taught us new signs and vocabulary to use at home and at pre-school. Harry and Sebastian are quite often seen to be naturally signing and saying the words or singing lots of nursery rhymes. The Signing Talkers classes have been a fun and educational looking at letters and phonic sounds as well as numbers.
I remember when Sebastian was only eight months old, he was laying down and suddenly popped his head up and signed “Milk” it was fantastic to see him signing without the tears and frustration of not being able to tell us he was thirsty. They could also both recognise many animals at an early age such as “Giraffe” and “Penguin” meaning we taught the extended family the signs too.
I am looking forward to sharing the signing experience with more families and watching the children grow with confidence by communicating their needs.
