Sign Classes Valinda Vincent is a dual certified behaviour therapist and play
therapist and holds certification from WeeHands as a WeeHands sign instructor. She has been working with children for over
15 years and specializes in treatment of children with developmental delays and cognitive disorders. For the first 11 years
of her career, she owned and operated a centre for children with various special needs providing therapy and treatment to
children 0-18 years of age. She later went on to consult to families and agencies for children with special needs and those
struggling with attachment disorders and trauma. She has a passion for teaching children and strongly believes that parents
are an integral part of children's learning and therefore children learn best when parents have high involvement in their
learning. Valinda teaches from a foundational belief that as parents and support persons we are here not to impart our knowledge
onto children but rather to teach them how to use their skills and guide them to their highest potential.
