Candice – Early, Early Childhood Intervention, Sign Language & Reiki
Sheryl, words cannot express the impact you have made on our family, especially our Son. Early on in Oliver's life we could see that he was struggling and my intuition told me that there was something going on. After being told over and over 'babies develop differently', it was a chance office visit, with another pediatrician, that led to confirmation our Son has vestibular disorder, specifically sensory motor based, Dyspraxia/Motor Planning Problems. This was a very hard time for us and we felt very lost...then you came into our lives. Not only did you provide the emotional and learning support we needed to be the strong parents to help our Son, you connected with our Son on such a deep level and he bloomed. A light went off inside of him and he is just a happy, little man. You are the only person to keep him focused for an entire hour and he just loves you! He is a signing machine, developing nicely, but most of all, he is happy, we all are happy! Thank you for all you have done, you mean the world to us!
Debbie – Sign Language Workshop for Teachers
I just want to tell you how much our professional members and I enjoyed your Baby Kneads Baby Sign Language workshop. You really did a great job picking out the topics and determining what signs and activities you were going to go over with us. You are a great speaker-that is very important when you have an evening workshop for teachers. You kept everyone in full attention and the two hours flew by. Thanks again. I am so glad that you were recommended to me!
Cynthia – Infant Massage
I purchased one hour infant massage gift certificates for several friends who recently had babies. I wanted something unique, something more unique than another baby outfit. They absolutely LOVED the gift of infant massage! They are still massaging their baby and found Sheryl’s session to be enjoyable and very useful for calming their baby when needed. Sheryl’s relaxed and warm personality makes everyone feel comfortable right away. I am going to buy more Baby Kneads infant massage gift certificates for my friends who have babies.
Julie – Sign Language
I just wanted to thank you for doing the introductory sessions for baby massage and sign language earlier this year. I have not been as faithful with the massaging as I would have like to be, but the signing is really taking off! My baby just turned 9 monthson Tuesday and he has mastered three signs- more, eat and milk. He signs them back perfectly! Just yesterday I was visiting with a friend. Peter, my little guy, was getting a little fussy- acting like he was tired. As soon as i picked him up and sat hime in my lap, he signed MILK. I quickly responded by snuggling him in for a little snack- it was such a wonderful feeling to be able to know exactly what he wanted and to satisfy his need. Since it was not "time “ for nursing, I would have otherwise put him in for a nap and listened to him cry a bit before he put himself to sleep. I would have interpreted his crying as an overtired way of winding down - not a frustrated cry because he was hungry/thirsty. This is wonderful! Thank you for again for opening this wonderful world of communication up to us!
Wendy – Sign Language
My husband and I sat down and counted all of our son's signs tonight-- he has 86! He puts 2 and 3 signs together. He also has 23 spoken words. Pretty cool at 18 months!
We really value all your knowledge and how you've contributed to our little guy communicating so well at such an early age. Thankyou!
