Children love sign language! School-age kids think it's a secret code to unlock, preschoolers embrace signing with the same enthusiasm reserved for treasured finger plays, and many babies born today will learn to sign before they can talk.
It is widely accepted that young
children have a strong capacity to learn more than one language,
and American Sign Language is no exception. Sign Language
has been shown to strengthen fine motor skills, boost literacy skills, and stimulate
the creative centers of the brain. More importantly, Sign
Language is something that kids simply enjoy learning!
The Story Time with Signs & Rhymes picture book series is a great place to start if you're interested in signing. Visit the companion website of children's author Dawn Babb Prochovnic to learn more.
Looking for Sign Language classes? SmallTalk Workshops can support your interest in developing an introductory
vocabulary in American Sign Language. The learning environment is designed
to be fun and engaging for adults and children alike. Each
