The Children’s Department at the Concord Free Public Library will offer a free weekly baby sign language program every Friday morning in June at 11 am. Caregivers and their pre-verbal babies or children are invited to join us for this 4-week workshop with well known instructor, Sheryl White. Sheryl will teach you and your baby American Sign Language. Learn how to reduce frustration and help give your baby the ability to communicate before he/she can speak. Baby sign language helps accelerate speech development and enhances early literacy skills. It also helps babies be more content, and deepens bonding. Each week participants will “bring” props to the class so that Sheryl can bring the virtual program to life by signing directly to the babies. That way they will know that it is interactive and hands-on. Participants are encouraged to sign up for all 4 workshop sessions which will take place every Friday in June. Register at https://concordlibrary.org/news-events/events-calendar to receive a Zoom invite.

Sheryl White of Baby Kneads has been teaching programs and working with families since 1999. She is a Certified Educator of Infant Massage, Baby Signer, Reiki Master and mother of three. Her role in these classes is to facilitate and help strengthen the connection between infant and caregiver through early communication.

This event is generously sponsored by The Friends of the Concord Free Public Library.
