Rachel Coleman at a Signing Time Academy eventThe Signing Time Foundation partners with organizations, schools, agencies, conferences, and Buddy Walks across the country to create community outreach experiences like no other. The mission of our Signing Time Community concerts and events is: Include, Inspire & Empower!

Our community concerts with Rachel Coleman are fully-inclusive events that are designed to let every child of every ability fully participate and enjoy the experience. Typically developing children as well as those with autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, speech delays, verbal apraxia, or physical disabilities will find a place “where friends can meet and find we’re not so different after all.” (That’s a direct quote from one of Rachel’s inspiring songs!) Join us at an event near you:
