Babies can definitely learn sign language, and I think that any kind of knowledge is helpful. The only thing is, the baby might think that everyone knows it but unfortunately that is not the case...and the baby might try to "speak" to others in sign language and not get a response. My daughter has taught my grandchild some sign language, so I know that it works!
yes I think all children should learn sign language.It would make a better world for DeaF people if everyone knew sign Language.The school system should teach it.
Thanks for your question. Yes, teaching sign language to babies is definitely helpful. Babies can control their hands and fingers earlier than they can speak. Therefore, a baby who knows some sign language can communicate at an earlier age. This cuts down on frustration and tantrums. Also, sign language is a visual mode of communication, so it is different from spoken language. "Different" intellectual exercises help a baby's brain and mind to learn and grow quickly.
Absolutely! I am an Interpreter for the Deaf and involved in the Deaf community as well as teach ASL to hearing students. When we had our first child we immediately started teaching her ASL.
We spoke and signed at the same time beginning at two months old. At ten months old, she began producing signs. Studies show that it helps speed up the desire to speak, increase vocabulary both with sign and spoken English, and increase conceptual skills.
We have witnessed all of this.Its amazing!
