Hey Shayla Podcast | EP 004
Will baby sign language delay speech?
With Julia with ASL Discoveries
Thank you for listening to the Hey Shayla podcast! Here we learn new things and decide what works for us and our family. We're the moms that support instead of judge and know there are many ways to do something right. I'd love to connect more on Instagram @heyshayla
Baby's first words are so fun! What if we could give them tools to communicate what they needed before they even start talking?!
We have Julia, the director of ASL Discoveries, an ASL educational company. They teach sign language to everyone from corporate companies like Amazon and Upwork, to babies! And Julia has been working with children and in the teaching field for a combination of over 10 years. When I found her I knew I wanted to have her on the Hey Shayla Podcast!
