About Baby Fingers Not your typical “baby sign language” program, our curriculum is rooted in real language and culture, supported by research and evidenced based practice, developed by a mom who is also an experienced music therapist and teacher of the Deaf. At Baby Fingers, our students of all ages are hearing and d/Deaf (capital D indicates cultural identity). Deaf teachers on our team teach ASL and Deaf culture; hearing teachers on our team teach signs from ASL that help lay the foundation for expressive and receptive language, fostering bilingualism, literacy and self-expression, supporting cultural identity. Make and keep language accessible for your child. Begin to learn a new language and bridge the gap between two languages you already speak. Strengthen your interaction through songs and musical play.
