Programme NameBaby Sign Language (4 wk course)
Summary of Topics Covered

Clever Little Handies is an award-winning baby sign class for parents with babies from newborns, up to wobblers / babies of 1 years of age.
We already know babies can communicate with their hands before they can talk; they can wave; they can clap; they can point. They have the dexterity in their hands to formulate signs long before they have the muscle dexterity in their mouths to form words. By providing tools to communicate from an early age they will have a vocabulary to use, even if they’re not formulating words yet. Irish Sign Language signs that pertain to the day to day with a baby are taught through nursery rhymes, songs and poems. Don’t wait to communicate!

Claire began this venture in 2019, with the heartfelt desire to bring new parents and their newborns together beyond the confines of their homes.
As the journey progressed, so did a commitment to proficiency. Claire has completed the Signature Level 1 award in Irish Sign Language and a QQI Level 4 in ISL. This fusion of passion and expertise propels Clever Little Handies forward, nurturing a space where communication, camaraderie, and early education flourish hand in hand. With a Clever Little Handies baby sign book newly published and soon to be released it will be even easier to connect with your little one!
