Welcome to Connecting With KIDZ! We are a group of Early Childhood Educators who use American Sign Language (ASL) to bridge communication, build language and literacy skills, promote social-emotional development and enhance positive parent-child relationships.
To promote School Readiness by providing training and coaching for early childhood educators, and families on using American Sign Language to unlock the potential in every child
To make a connection with young children and caring adults and plant the seeds of early learning
for lifelong learning success.
To provide a fun, playful, language-rich learning environment to support the whole child through American Sign Language, sensory play, music & movement, books and rhymes.
We believe early communication sets the foundation for accelerated learning. As a form of early communication, a basic American Sign Language (ASL) vocabulary can empower young children to express their needs and feelings before they can speak and help them transition from baby to Big Kid.
Research shows that using sign language in early childhood programs have positive effects on increasing language and literacy skills of young hearing children and using signs can also help older children who struggle with reading.
Connecting With KIDZ invites you to become part of our growing ‘signing’ community.
