Speech Pathologist and Signing Time Instructor Abbey Cook is proud to announce that Emmy-nominated Rachel Coleman, host of Signing Time, will be performing for children and families in Peoria, Illinois this summer.  The Signing Time Foundation Community Event on July 21st  will be held at 3:30 p.m. at the Illinois Central College Performing Arts Center. Info and tickets are available at  The event will be interpreted in American Sign Language for our Deaf and Hard-of Hearing patrons.

Thousands of families in the Midwest have been touched by Signing Time, the hit PBS show that introduced American Sign Language to children across the Nation. Now these families will be able to come and see her perform, live in Peoria.

Coleman, who co-created Signing Time as a means to teach children of all abilities how to communicate using American Sign Language (ASL), has seen firsthand the miracles that can come from using sign language. As the mother of a daughter who is deaf, and another who has cerebral palsy and spina bifida, Coleman has spent the last few years making sign language fun and accessible for all children through the Signing Time series. Whether used by a pre-verbal infant, a non-verbal child with disabilities, or a family who simply wants to learn ASL as a second language, Signing Time reaches children with diverse learning styles and encourages interaction through signing, singing, speaking and moving.

For the past eight years, Signing Time has been dedicated to proving the benefits and positive impact of sign language on children of all abilities. While most people regard sign language as something only for the Deaf community, thousands of parents are seeing that all children can accelerate their language and reading development through the unique blend of sign language, written word, song and video modeling used in Signing Time.

This event is only made possible through ticket sales, company sponsors and individual donors. Also essential are the volunteers who will be giving their time and energy. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Signing Time Foundation. Donations made online or at the concert will also benefit the Signing Time Foundation, and will be tax-deductible.

Rachel has seen firsthand the benefits of signing with ALL children, not only for children who are deaf and hard of hearing, and is committed to making ASL easily accessible to all families through the Signing Time series. The Signing Time Foundation (a 501 (c)(3) non-profit) is dedicated to making sign language fun and accessible to all children, creating a world in which all children can express themselves and be understood.
