Barbara Thumann is pleased to announce that she will be having a two-part Baby Talk Class in Hoboken on Fridays, October 13th and the 20th. Location: St. Matthew's Community Center.
If she gets enough interest, she will also consider holding Saturday classes as well to accomodate busy working parents.
This class is a great way to help your child in their early developmental stages!
See below for contact information and to confirm the time.
Being raised with a deaf older brother, I quickly understood the value of non-verbal communication. The ability to read facial expressions and use sign language were fundamentally useful in my daily interaction with him as well as other people. It also helped propel me with my career further down the road.
Couples with babies would be very interested in the new "Baby Talk Class" available in Northern Jersey.
BABY SIGN LANGUAGE
It's fun, it's easy AND it really works!
New research demonstrates that teaching sign language to hearing babies improves their language, vocabulary and reading skills as they develop.
Babies who learn sign language can have up to a 10-12 point higher IQ than non-signers by preschool because sign language aids brain development. All languages are stored in the left part of the brain and visual learning is stored in the right part of the brain. When a baby learns sign language both the right brain and the left are used. This is a wonderful advantage for babies because they are using both hemispheres of their brains and therefore building more synapses or connections in their brains and greater brain function.
BABY TALK CLASS will teach you 100 simple signs, the alphabet and counting to 10 so you can begin to teach your baby (as young as 6 months old) how to talk/sign/communicate before they are physically mature enough to vocalize in 2 (45 minute to an hour) classes.
Why stop with "say bye-bye" when your baby CAN say so much more to you before her first birthday?
Communication with your baby at an early age is fun, less frustrating for you and your child, you build a closer bond with your baby and you are giving your child great knowledge that lasts a lifetime!
