Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire dropped in to see local mums and tots take part in a baby sing and sign class at the Bishopbriggs Leisuredome.
The classes taught by Lynne McColl combine action songs and nursery rhymes with sign language gestures so that babies as young as seven months can communicate to parents without speaking.
Commenting Jo Swinson said:
“It was amazing to see how babies can learn to communicate early on through sign language.
“The classes boost language development so that in some instances babies can express themselves instead of cry. Something I’m sure all parents would appreciate!
“Parents interested in taking part can call Lynne at 07891 852 863 or visit http://bit.ly/YbnLVa ”
