Happy Holidays to my “signing family”! I hope the season is filled with love, kindness and joy for you and your loved ones. I cannot express enough how thankful I am to know each and every one of you, and how honored I am to be part of your journey. Keep those hands flying! 

Signing with Autism video series released!

As many of you know, I have been working on a very special project for several years. I am so excited to announce that it is FINALLY complete and open to the community! If you would like to check out a free preview or learn more about it, please go to our new website: WECANSIGN.com Although the series is geared toward families, caregivers and educators of those with autism, research shows that signing can help tremendously with a wide range of individuals who struggle to fully communicate verbally.

Referrals and reviews

If any of you would be willing to write a review about me, my teaching style, or how sign language has blessed your life, I would be beyond grateful! Just go to the wecansign.com website and fill out the review form at the bottom.

Tara’s soapbox

What an amazing experience this past week! To celebrate 20 years in operation, a company called Comfort Keepers did a nationwide search for 20 recipients to receive their “wishes”. This beautiful gal, Julie, who has recently lost all of her hearing, had a wish to learn sign language so that she can communicate with her family and caregivers. 
Comfort Keepers found me and asked me to help grant her wish. We had a surprise “reveal” celebration on Wednesday. I will never forget how Julie’s eyes lit up when she learned the news! I am HONORED to be part of granting Julie’s wish and can’t wait to help her be able to communicate again! Comfort Keepers, you guys are AMAZING!
