S.T.A.R. Baby Signs II (#Deaffriendly)

Monday, February 25, 2019, 1:30 pm

Pre-literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they are taught these skills in school. Singing, Talking and Reading (S.T.A.R.) are important parts of early literacy that can start at birth. If you are a caregiver or parent interested in enhancing pre-literacy development, fine motor skills, bonding and communication with your young child (under 5 years old), join us for our Deaf-friendly S.T.A.R. Baby Signs class to incorporate sign language into your daily life.
