BabyTime Expo Features Rachel Coleman, Signing Time Founder
Las Vegas, NV….. BabyTime Expo, a public event celebrating babies and toddlers and their families, will take place Saturday May 2 and Sunday, May 3, at the South Point Hotel, conveniently located at I-15 and Silverado Ranch. The show will feature all the providers and goods needed to fill babies’ and toddlers’ lives with fun, joy and good health. In its second year, the show will include more product manufacturers, retailers and service providers aimed at pregnant women and children ages 0 – 4.
Emmy nominated Rachel Coleman, co-creator of Signing Time, will be a featured presenter during BabyTime Expo. Slated for 1:00pm Saturday, May 2nd, on the Events Stage, Coleman teaches ASL vocabulary to children of ALL abilities in a fun and engaging way.
“We are pleased to include Rachel Coleman as a highlight of BabyTime Expo”, Mindi Cherry, CEM, Vice President, noted. “Signing Time can be such an important part of a child’s development.”
Since the release of their first video in 2002, parents and professionals everywhere praise the Signing Time series for opening up a world of possibilities for their children, whether they are using ASL as a means to communicate with their babies before they develop speech, or learning a second language, or even for children with special needs for whom speech is a challenge. ASL is the only language that incorporates both kinesthetic and visual learning styles. It is a tool that empowers hearing infants, toddlers, and children with special needs to express themselves. Combining the movement of sign language with music creates an educational environment that is fun and rewarding for everyone.
Coleman’s enthusiasm became a PBS television show “Signing Time”. Signing Time is used widely by educators, pediatricians, home-schoolers, speech therapists, public schools, daycare centers, libraries and families as the most fun and easy way to introduce children to sign language.
Other highlights include appearances by Chuck E. Cheese, Geoffrey from Babies R Us and magician Will Roya. Alongside exhibits, BabyTime Expo will feature special areas including a fun zone for toddlers, fashion shows, a Diaper Derby, and a Daddy Derby.
