Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center (a 501c3 non-profit charity)
is becoming the Sensory Impaired Guidance Network
The one and only online preschool program that develops ALL of your child's skills (social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical) while using sign language. Using Sign Language with spoken English allows your child to integrate skills in both languages while addressing sensory issues. We accept children with and without learning differences.
This is a video demonstrating our teaching style. While we are not using pure American Sign Language (ASL), we are using ASL signs and phases while signing everything that is said. The signs we use are easily understood by adults using ASL. In addition our teachers are fluent in ASL for children who already sign in ASL and your child will start to sign and understand ASL in this class in addition to learning phonics, reading, writing, and math.
Hi! I'm Ms. Beth, and the guy below me is Mr. Fleener, and for as long as I can remember, I've wanted to teach. I have been teaching many different subjects in American Sign Language and English to our sensory impaired clients including K-12 content for over 18 years. The last 6 years I have been working with families to custom design curriculum for children with special needs who homeschool. I started a small home preschool 3 years ago and have loved teaching children in my community! I have been teaching online at SIGN Preschool since May 2020. I have a background in disability studies, psychology, and early childhood education.
Mr. Fleener has been teaching sign language to all age groups for over 15 years both in person and online. Now, we get to teach YOUR child online! We can't wait!!
"This is a great, great option! Not only is Beth teaching sign language but also preschool skills. This is an innovative online preschool." - Thakore L.
On school days, your child will enjoy learning from an actual teacher for 45 minutes ... AND your child will have a blast in the bonus class each week talking and signing with us and his or her friends!
For each class day: your child will love learning from an actual teacher (that's US).
What do we do during a Play Date?
Your child will have a blast talking to, hanging out, and playing with us and their other preschool or kindergarten friends.
Our online program is taught by an actual teacher with real-life friends! It's the next best thing to local school! And our curriculum is great for both typical and differently-abled children!
Why Learn Sign Language?
At our preschool, we use the FUNDAMENTALS Preschool Curriculum by Joy Anderson, an activity-based curriculum with developmentally appropriate activities that will prepare your child for kindergarten in as little as 1 hour each day! We also use Handwriting without Tears, RightStart Mathematics, Learning Dynamics, Learning A-Z, TKS Boot Camp, and Montessori inspired activities to make sure your child has access to best programs for reading, writing, math, science and social studies. We also follow the California Preschool Learning Foundations from the California Department of Education. All presented in sign language with spoken English support. There's no need for you to supplement curriculum at home!
We make sure that your child is ready for Kindergarten or First grade by introducing and teaching all academic subjects at the Kindergarten level while adapting activities to be developmentally appropriate.
