About Us

Founder Lisa Garrett is conversationally fluent in ASL and signs at home with her Deaf fiancee and hearing son. She has completed coursework in Early Childhood Education and is currently studying in the American Sign Language Certificate program at Carleton University. She teaches sign language classes for babies and their caregivers.

Based in Carleton Place, we usually work with hearing children and their families, and the age range is 0 to 5 years. Contact us today to start signing!

We recognize that relationships have the power to heal. We know that positive, strong relationships start with clear communication, which is why it’s our mission to teach babies, parents, and caregivers how to connect through American Sign Language.
