in-home sign language classes
Sign language lessons are provided to the family and extended family in the family home or at the child's community daycare or preschool. These fun and enjoyable lessons are offered on a weekly or bi-weekly basis according to the family's needs. Our qualified Deaf instructors will provide sign lessons that meet the day-to-day communicative needs of the family, with basic sign language vocabulary to start, working up to sentences and stories. Sign Language instruction is also available on an Outreach basis, where available.
group sign language classes
Once a week, at the preschool, parents and extended family members may join a 90 minute sign language class that reflects the themes occurring in the preschool that week.
