FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Rachel Coleman, Host of Popular Children’s TV Series Signing Time!, to Perform at This Year’s “Sing and Sign” Vegas PBS event
LAS VEGAS, NV – April 25, 2008 – Rachel Coleman, host of Signing Time, will be performing during this year’s “Sing and Sign” Vegas PBS kids event on May 2, 2008 from 7:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. at the Rainbow Library Amphitheatre, located at 3150 N. Buffalo Dr. in Las Vegas.
Coleman, who co-created Signing Time to teach children to communicate using American Sign Language (ASL), has seen firsthand the miracles that can come from using sign language. As the mother of a daughter who is deaf, and another with cerebral palsy and spina bifida, Coleman has spent the last few years making sign language fun and accessible for all children through the Signing Time series with DVDs, music CDs, books, flashcards and a public television show.
The “Sing and Sign” is a free event that is open to the public and is sponsored by Vegas PBS and Las Vegas-Clark County Library District as part of the Ready to Learn program. During the performance, Coleman will use songs, signs and group interaction to teach hundreds of families and children the power that comes from learning how to communicate using ASL.
Signing Time has become the largest library of entertaining signing videos of its kind available and offers an unparalleled multi-sensory approach to teaching children ASL. Signing Time reaches children with diverse learning styles and encourages interaction through signing, singing, speaking and moving.
Signing Time can be viewed on Vegas PBS Channel 10, Monday-Friday at 1:00 and every Sunday at 6:30 a.m.
For more information and directions to the event, visit the Vegas PBS: Ready to Learn website.
