Sign language courses for adults provide the reinforcement and human interaction necessary to build confidence. Our Upper West Side sign language classes also offer opportunities to practice signing skills in real-life situations. Our adult students in sign language classes sometimes go to deaf community events and social activities so they can practice their signing skills. A very common question asked by people that are just becoming interested in sign language is, “How do I find sign language classes in my area?” Many people are interested in learning sign language but can’t find classes. Based in Manhattan, Stacey Miller, SLP, is a speech therapy practice offering language, speech, and motor therapy for children of all ages. With over 7 years of experience, Stacey teaches adults how to use sign language to communicate.
If you are a parent of a deaf or hard of hearing child, our Upper West Side sign language classes help parents communicate with their children. By participating in sign language classes for adults, you are taught word associations and meanings you never knew before, since the signs are often descriptive of the origin of the word. Because sign language classes for adults encourage word to word and letter to letter connections, it is a great tool for helping with adult illiteracy as well. Not only will you find new ways to express yourself, and communicate with your infant or child, frustration levels are lowered and self-confidence is increased.
Upper West Side sign language classes are the first step to start communicating with your infant or child. You will be provided with thorough, useful information and techniques necessary to incorporate signing into your day to your day to activities. You will not only learn to sign with your infant or child, but other individuals with special needs.
