Who would benefit from this course?

Those with babies and toddlers have the most to gain from this course, as it offers an easy to use communication tool between parent and child before the child is able to speak.

If you’re finding yourself frantically trying to understand why your baby is crying or your toddler is having a tantrum and nothing seems to be appeasing them, this will help them to tell you what they need.

The course also provides professional child-carers with an excellent tool to use in your role, that will enrich the lives of your clients and their children, and which will give you an extra edge over your competition.

Learning to sign also provides children with learning disabilities with an easy to learn communication tool that reduces the frustration and anger of not being able to express themselves and helps them to gain a better grasp of what’s being communicated by others.
