Colleen Brunetti, M.Ed., C.H.C – Potty Time Specialist
Colleen did her undergraduate work in special education and elementary education and has a master’s degree in reading. She teaches sign language classes as Master Instructor with the Signing Time Academy through her company, Little Hands Big Ideas – a company focused on supporting happy kids and healthy families with sign language and holistic health coaching. In addition, she considers herself very lucky to do lots of other writing for Two Little Hands Productions.  Colleen lives in Connecticut with her husband and son, who is in elementary school. Colleen went through adventures in potty training with her own free-spirited and very active son, learning along the way that a sense of humor and a great deal of flexibility is really the only way she was going to maintain sanity. She loves working with children, signing and singing, and is very excited to contribute to the Potty Time program. You can reach Colleen at colleen@littlehandsbigideas.com.
