This session is designed to help parents, moms-to-be, and grandparents provide preschool children with the language-rich activities they need for starting school. The time of these sessions is: 11:20 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.
For all day care, preschool professionals, teachers, camp counselors, et al: Research in the Early Childhood field encourages young children to use sign language. The more language or signs that a child can learn in their earliest years, the greater their vocabulary will grow and their intellect will develop later in life. Learn how to incorporate sign language into your curriculum. The time of this session is 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
