Sign Language - Miami,FL
I'm a proud parent of a 2yr. Old daughter. My daughter is extremely advanced and i want to take advantage of her learning skills to teach her baby sign language. She currently knows engligh and spanish but i want to introduce her to something different. Does anyone know of any local schools or places that teach baby sign language either in broward or miami.

I'm not sure where you can take a class, but a good introduction might be the Signing Time videos. We used them with my daughter when she was 1 and it helped her communicate with us when she was pre-verbal. Regardless, the videos are fun for kids with some cute music that incorpates the signs that they teach on the videos. I think they would be great for kids of any age.
You can find info and order the videos on www.signingtime.com or order them on amazon.com.

I am pretty sure that Gymboree offers singing classes. We bought a book called Baby Signs (Acredolo) and used it to teach our son.

Check out Nova Family Center. Most of the Hispanic women I know have children who speak at least two languages and sign. I am pretty sure they went to the classes at Nova. In South Florida many of the homes are bilingual.
