In my opinion this is the best of all the Holiday specials that will be going on over the next few days at Signing Time. Save 40% on all orders over $40. Today is a great day to pick up DVD's, books and flashcards. Or if you are an educator, and have been looking at the Preschool Program or the Classroom edition today is the day to buy. Start Shopping now. The sale ends tonight!
A few weeks back, I met 10/11 News reporter Bridget Fargen at a dinner meeting. We ended up sitting next to each other, and during the dinner we talked about our families and backgrounds. I was excited to hear that she knew ASL, and had taken it through high school and college. She was equally excited that I am teaching sign language vocabulary to babies and children in the community.
A few weeks later she called and asked if I would be interested in doing a story. Of course, I said YES! She came out and spent over and hour with Ben and I talking about sign language and how it has helped Ben to read. Ben was not the most cooperative that day, and was screaming most of the time I was trying to talk. But they did get the a clip of me explaining how we accidentally figured out he could read.
I also directed her to Ben's Speech Pathologist, Staci who is quoted in the report. The are a few other local Mom's in the report with their babies. Click Here to see the finished report.
