Since launching Signing Store. ca and offering Baby Can Sign! classes in 2004, Tricia Davis, M.A. owner has had the pleasure of serving hundreds of families across Canada: from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island and the northern territories.
Through interactive classes and workshops she’s empowered parents to communicate early with their babies and toddlers, in English or a family’s first spoken language. With a bit of help in sign language along with spoken language, parents find our early what is on their child’s mind – without guessing. She educates parents on childhood speech and language milestones.
As an experienced parent herself and training in speech-language and hearing professions she has supported-hundreds of parents of special needs children (eg: Autism Spectrum Disorder, speech-language delayed, hard of hearing, and deaf children and more). She has shared stories of trials and tribulation of child rearing in the areas of language and cognitive development. She has provided support and programming to parents for implementing sign language with their children.
She’s worked collaboratively with professionals in her field of speech, language and hearing. Tricia has instructed sign language to teachers and aides at the Horizon School for Special Needs in Olds, Alberta.
SigningStore.ca has exhibited at Parenting Expos in Edmonton, Calgary , Toronto, and Barrie, Ontario.
