Our Story

Donnajean started Budding Signers while she was on maternity leave with her first child in 2019. Her husband Andrew is profoundly Deaf and they use sign language to communicate on a daily basis.

They knew their son Calvin's first language would be American Sign Language.

While teaching her son to sign Donnajean was inspired to spread the benefits of signing with infants and little ones to their parents and caregivers.
