Each week will introduce a new theme. Within that theme you will learn 6-7 signs. The stimulating activities, songs, play and information introduced will all support learning those signs.
During the first session you will receive the SS&PTM Kit to take home with you. The books, songs on the CD and videos will help you continue to teach the signs to your baby at home.
Each week you will receive a handout that explains that week's Baby Signs® and Baby Minds® Tips given about language and cognitive development along with the signs learned and words to the songs taught.
The SS&PTM Curriculum is dedicated to:
- Following the child's lead
- Operating within the child's "Zone of Proximal Development"
- Providing multi-sensory learning experiences
- Appreciating both language comprehension and production
- Taking advantage of the power of repetition
