HAPPY HANDS STORY TIME!

Wednesdays, 10 a.m., Sept. 11, 18, 25; Oct. 2 Happy Hands teaches American Sign Language vocabulary, speech, and expression through multisensory learning. Signing helps promote verbal communication and encourage reading skills and can have amazing results with children who have speech and communication challenges. This program will empower communication by teaching a broad base of ASL vocabulary that can be used immediately. Children, including babies, have the capacity to understand, learn, and communicate before they develop the ability to speak. For ages 6 months to 5 years old. Story Room Presented in partnership with Happy Hands.
