WECARE workshop: Start signing!
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Give your students a hand in spelling, vocabulary, and other skills by introducing them to sign language. Louise (Roberge) Donovan; teacher and owner for 34 years of Roberge Early Learning Center in Cromwell, will teach you some sign language skills & techniques incorporated through play and music to use with your students. Signing with babies can help them communicate before they can talk and two, three- and four-year-olds usually find signing easy and entertaining because it taps into their natural tendency to communicate using their bodies. Studies have shown that those who were introduced to American Sign Language (ASL) words, such as signs for the weather, colors, numbers, and feelings, did better on vocabulary tests than their peers. Sign language has the potential to encourage communication and prevent melt downs.

Program begins at 6pm preceded by a light meal at 5:30 pm for those who register. Please use Registration form through Park and Recreation Dept. Certificates of attendance will be provided for those requiring them.
