About SuperHands Baby Sign

I’m Megan and I’m bringing a new and interactive class for you and your baby to Malahide.  Through a 6 week course you’ll be able to help your baby communicate before they can talk as well as meet other Mums and have fun!

Baby sign language is a series of simple gestures or signs, based on Irish Sign Language (ISL) that parents and their little ones use together to quickly and easily convey meaning.  The signs are used before a baby can talk so it reduces the frustration associated with not being understood.  Signing also encourages your baby to talk.  You speak as you sign and research shows that babies who sign tend to speak earlier and have a more extensive vocabulary at school age than those who don’t.  There are other advantages too.  When you sign with your baby you spend quality time talking to them, making eye contact, singing and saying rhymes and that all helps to create a strong parent/child bond.  Signing is also great for your baby’s emotional development.  If your child can tell you when they’re hot or tired or hungry or excited then they’re developing an awareness of their emotions and the ability to express them.

I’m a Mum to 2 girls and after my younger daughter was born I made the decision not to go back to work full time.  I have first hand experience of the benefits of signing so I was delighted when the opportunity came up to teach with SuperHands. Signing with your children is great fun.  Seeing your baby sign back to you for the first time is just as exciting as watching them take their first steps and it’s amazing how quickly their vocabulary expands.

Classes are for babies from 4m to 23m. During the 6 week course you’ll learn a series of songs and action rhymes to help you remember those clever signs and there will be time for a cup of tea and a biscuit at the end.  The course costs €100 and that includes the beautifully illustrated SuperHands dictionary of baby sign and a CD with all the songs from the course.  Courses run regularly – check www.superhands.ie for the latest dates and venues.
