Hallow's Eve is my favorite holy-day of the year. I love the dressing up in costumes, contests, delicious harvest comfort food, and of course the candies! Hope everyone has a wonderful festive celebration this year.
This year and in 2016 - I plan to reaching out more to Home School students in the nation and locally. If anyone knows any home schooled students wanting to learn ASL - feel free to refer them to me!
The other goal I wish to accomplish locally is to set up my first ASL FOR BABES classes. This is designed for parents with prelingual deaf and hearing infants age 6 months and up - I'm trying to round up at least 5 parents and teach at my mother's beauty salon in Avon-by-the-Sea, NJ.
Classes will be on Sundays as it's when the salon is closed. Thinking of starting at 11am - one hour - for 8 weeks.
What will we learn? You'll learn basic ASL vocabulary & sentences - eating, bathing, playing with toys, reading/signing a very simple baby book, emotions, songs and manners. (There's more!)
Parents will need to register & pay in advance.
What to bring? Please bring a blanket, small toys, bottle/sippy cup, snacks, books, and notebook/pen.
Email me to reserve a seat and as soon I get 5 parents to participate - we'll set the date and get started teaching babies to learn authentic ASL and watch the communication breakdown and tantrums fade away! Pre-lingual babies learning ASL also have higher IQs!
I'm so excited to teach ASL for Babes classes this Fall/Winter.
If any questions - simply email me in my home page.
