Southwest Region has a NEW Associate Director!
Hi! My name is Robin Williams, and I am a Master Signing Time Instructor for the Signing Time Academy. I use the award-winning Signing Time materials to teach little ones and their parents to sign – and I am now the Associate Director for the Southwest Region! I will oversee all of Southern California, Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and South America.
I am looking forward to getting to know many of you as I work in this new capacity. I want to introduce myself by sharing a a few things about me:
- I teach Signing Time classes at my local community center, libraries, and adult school – see www.LittleOnesLove2Sign.com for class times and information. I also have a meetup group.
- I am the co-author of several Signing Time educational guides:
Enhance Literacy Instruction Using Signing Time
Using Sign Language in the Classroom
Using Signing Time in Early Childhood Settings: A Guide for Educators
- I have been using American Sign Language for the past 14 years. As a mother of an infant and a toddler, sign language has been a valuable tool for communication since birth. My toddler has speech and other developmental delays. American Sign Language has helped to reduce frustration with communication, as well as improve his oral vocabulary and reading skills. My son absolutely loves Signing Time! It is his favorite DVD to watch. He knows a plethora of words in ASL and uses them daily to enhance his communication skills. He now enjoys teaching his little sister how to use sign language. My daughter started signing when she was 9 months old. Isabella is now 21 months old and has reached the “Signing Eureka!” stage. She is learning many new ASL words daily.
