Join Signing Time Academy instructor Kendra for Tuesday's Neighbor's Read program. This week's event will teach kids about signing with a special focus on winter. Kendra's programs are always popular with children and parents alike.

Learning is one of the latest new parenting trends. While this is essential form of communication to a family with a child who is deaf it also has proven beneficial to hearing families as well. Infants and toddlers who are taught basic signs learn to talk earlier. Signs also provide little ones the means to communicate a specific need even when they don't have the vocabulary words to ask for it.
