Communicate with children more effectively earlier in life

Did you know that I’m offering an exciting sign language course this summer? See the article below…

Coming this July, Dawn Braa, an instructor in the Child Development program at DCTC, will be offering Sign Language in Early Childhood, CDEV2715, a one-credit course that gives child care providers, teachers and parents the chance to learn how to communicate with children more effectively earlier in life.

The course begins July 5, 2010, and meets Monday and Thursday through July 22 from 6 p.m. to 8:25 p.m. in Room 2–206 on the college’s Rosemount campus.

Designed to equip students, parents, and caregivers with the tools they need to introduce signing in child care environments serving preverbal children. Sign Language in Early Childhood will examine research, review benefits of signing with hearing infants, practice modeling signs, identify strategies for parental involvement with sign and discover how to create learning opportunities in daily activities.

To learn more about this ground-breaking course, contact Dawn Braa at 651-423-8315.
