To Whom It May Concern,

I would like to thank Lillian Hubler for presenting at the “Making Every Connection Matter” mini-conference at the Hilton Garden Tampa East/Brandon on May 2, 2015. Lillian was dynamic, inspirational and entertaining..

Lillian presented “Utilizing Our 4 Brains with SEAL – Social, Emotional Academic Learning” all while using sign language as the means to communicate. She used American Sign Language (ASL) to show teachers how to encourage social skills with children using no words, just simply signing. Teachers participated in songs, rhymes and activities that used sign language as the catalyst for eliciting children’s emotional responses to situations that they encounter throughout their day. Lillian left every teacher social/emotional learning posters that they could take back to their classroom and implement with the children.

Lillian was amazing! She attracted and kept everyone’s attention just by walking to the front of the room. She is a tiny package that has a huge explosive personality that spills out over an entire room of people. She was a breath of fresh air. Attendees left the day with ideas and activities that they wanted to take back and implement right away. They were excited and they were inspired by Lillian’s wealth of knowledge and how she presented her thoughts to the group. We will have Lillian back in the future and we highly recommend her to be a part of any conference or training day.

Please feel free to contact me or Miriam Ortiz directly at 813-280-0800 if you have any questions.

Thank you Lillian for your inspiring presentation,

"Dear Time to Sign, Inc.
On behalf of the Virginia Head Start Association (VAHSA), I am writing to highly recommend Lillian Hubler for speaking engagements, especially for any organization working with children and families. She was energetic, motivating, knowledgeable, and equally entertaining.
She was noted 24 times on our evaluations as being the best presenter at our conference. Not only was she well-liked, she was also very generous in giving ideas and materials for use in the classroom. She empowered our Head Start caregivers. Her genuine love for the children and her mission of communication with sign language for the betterment of relationships and self-regulation among children was very evident.
The comments from our participants on the conference evaluations speak for themselves! An open-ended question asking about a main message the participant gained from the 3-day conference, you can see that overwhelmingly, Lillian Hubler was able to connect with our audience:
 Sign Language can be a universal language
 That we all make a great difference in a child’s life
 The use of sign language can help you with your children
 Sign Language, love it
 Sign to get children’s attention
 Learning occurs through loving, secure, nurturing relationship: ASL bridges languages – the sign is the same in ASL for mom and madre
 Children can learn at an earlier age using sign language
 The key is to engage children in everything
 We are called to touch a life and we never know when we have the biggest effect
 A very good reminder about how important our roles in the lives of children/families are
 I realized that I would like to renew a lot more of my education, including taking sign language
 Making connections and the impact to the brain of a child
 Sign language will be more common in the future
 Communicate and engage with children – they know so much more than we give them credit for; sign with even our very youngest children
 Sign language is fun and a great way to teach/learn
 Sign language is a fun and positive way to start the day
 Sign language is also good for engaging and teaching children, helps with attention too
 Using sign language in everyday activities – emotions/self-regulation
 The importance of communicating with our children and teachers
 Communication is important
 How to involve/engage children; sign language is powerful
 It only takes one person to make a difference in a child’s life
 As an educator, we matter in the lives of the children
 It only takes one person to make a difference in a child’s life; I will think of this every day when I drive to work
 Start with the sign language – from the average to the genius child, they all benefit
 Use music in the classroom; incorporate sign language
 One person can make a world of difference!
I highly recommend Lillian Hubler as your next speaker. She is a clear example of someone who loves what she does, and her knowledge and ideas are infectious. Your audience will remember her long after the conference is over. To me, is the true sign of a talented and impactful presenter wo can make a difference in the lives of educators, children, and families.

West Kentucky Association for Early Childhood Education

To Whom it May Concern:

     On behalf of the West KY Association for Early Childhood Education (WKAECE), I am delighted to write a recommedation letter for Lillian Hubler, founder and director of Time to Sign, inc.  Our organization was fortunate to have Ms. Hubler present as the keynote speaker and session presenter at our annual Spring Institute held on April 18, 2015 on the campus of West KY Community & Technical College in Paducah, KY.

    Ms. Hubler was one of the most motivational Early Childhood keynote speakers our audience had ever seen! Her sessions invited active participation and stimulated learning through her topics on supporting effective and meaningful communication using her talent in teaching American Sign Language.  The early childhood providers attending loved the “high octane” sessions that were full of laughter but also contained innovative information to be applied in their diverse settings.  Most of all, Ms. Hubler understood how influential providers are in making a difference in the lives of young children through their guidance in an early childhood setting.  She definitely left each attendee with new ideas and motivation to take to their classrooms on Monday morning.  She was also extremely generous in giving away sign language posters, handouts, quick tips and many door prizes!!!!!!!!

     As a member of the plannning committee for the conference which attracts professionals from the western Kentucky region, I must say Lillian Hubler was easy to work with in the planning process.  She catered the presentations to the needs of our area early childhood professionals.  Most of all, her prompt action in responding to correspondence/contract process in the planning was to be commended!  When planning a conference to this magnitude, it was refreshing to not have to worry about the keynote speaker’s commitment.

     WKAECE and the western Kentucky early childhood profession celebrate Lillian Hubler for enhancing our lives with her presentations and dedication to supporting the expansion of learning possibilities that work to benefit children.  If you need further information please do not hesitate to contact:  Greta Henry, Institute Planning Committee  270-534-3087 or ghenry0003@kctcs.edu.

Sincerely,

Greta Henry, WKAECE Spring Institute Planning Committee

A Great Letter from Goddard Schools

Lillian Hubler, author and trainer for the Time To Sign, ASL sign language program, has been a valued and trusted resource vendor for The Goddard School chain since 2004.

In that time she has provided over 300 Goddard Schools with a comprehensive and accurate sign language program. Her program is designed to allow non‐sign language speakers to teach children to converse in ASL. The program is singularly effective with preverbal children in our Infant and 1 year old classes.

Lillian has also personally conducted training sessions in our schools so that our faculty have correct and complete signing ability. These trainings routinely receive excellent reviews for both her ability to teach and her personal warmth and passion for her topic.

I am pleased to offer this letter of recommendation and am available to answer any questions
which may arise.
Sincerely,
Michael Capp
