ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Hi I’m Ashlea of SmallTalk Academy! I’ve been teaching sign language to families in Barrie and surrounding areas for over 15 years and am a certified Signing Time Academy and Sign2me Instructor. I’ve trained and mentored infant sign language instructors throughout Canada and continue to teach children of all ages the joys of sign language.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING…
We had so much learning baby sign language. Our baby can communicate about all the things she’s interested in. She sometimes uses signs that I’ve forgotten I showed her! Its really incredible. I’m so happy with the investment into my child’s education. We are having fun, all while learning a new language. Ashlea’s classes are fun and easy- we highly recommend it!

Baby Sign Language is such a blessing to our lives. We began teaching our baby how to sign when he was 5 months old and we have been loving every minute of it. The whole family enjoys learning the signs and being able to use it in our daily lives. I feel that this experience has brought us all so much closer, as we grow, play & learn together.
~ Ashleigh, Mom to Tyler
We took Baby Sign Level 1 when my son was about 9 months old. He is almost 17 months old now and has been able to let us know what he needs by signing for some time now. He signs more, milk, water, cat, apple, sing, all done, bath, bird & just the other day he signed wet to let me know his diaper needed changing! It is so exciting when he uses a new sign! My husband really likes that he, too, can understand what our son needs and uses signing with him as well. I babysit another 17 month old who also was in Level 1 and it has been so beneficial and helpful to my childcare to be able to incorporate signing in our day. We loved Ashlea’s enthusiasm and the way her classes were structured… lots of singing and playing designed to teach us the signs! Take a class from SmallTalk Academy! You will be so glad you did!”

My son and I took baby sign language with SmallTalk Academy and out of all the classes we did, these were by far the most beneficial and fun! Ashlea is a wonderful teacher! My son would never have been able to communicate with us so clearly at such an early age without learning baby sign language. He signs for everyday basics- more, help, milk, please, change my diaper & water. He also signs for fun-toy, dog, gorilla, play & ball. I rave all about the benefits we’ve received from taking these classes. All children should have the opportunity and tools to express themselves a young age.
