Signing Smart
Infant & Toddler Teacher Workshop

Presented byTracey Kretzer, MS, Lincensed Signing Smart Instructor

Every teacher must take ongoing classes to keep their license up to date. Why not recommend this class to your child care provider today?

A 2.5 hours seminar steal at $200 + materials (books and flash cards) for up to 7 teachers 
Encourage your child care center and/or babysitter to sign with your baby or toddler in just seconds a day and increase your child's IQ, ability to communicate, and conflict resolution skills!  Toddler asks for BALL by signing instead of crying or grabbing!  Here a 14 month-old child (behind teacher) signs "BALL" and the toddler gives him the ball!! No crying, no whining, no grabbing, or interrupting the teacher!  
The National Institute of Health (NIH)

showed that babies & toddlers who were signed to as children had an average of

12 point higher IQ
by age 8!
