My Smart Hands New Haven
Elyse Russell MSH Baby Sign Language Instructor
Hi, my name is Elyse, I am a hearing person, but have been in the practice of using ASL for a little over 2 years now. I am new to teaching although I have had practice teaching my son starting at 2 years old.
Why did I begin teaching? I discovered with my son, and the non-verbal individuals I support at my day job, that it helps immensely to improve our communication with one another. I also truly enjoy seeing the growth in one’s ability to express themselves!
My goal is to pass that same joy along to you and your children so that we all can share in the excitement of learning a new language and reaping the rewards!
