Absolutely amazing yet I know that Baby Sign Language really does work! It will definitely speed the learning process... I have worked with my nephew and have seen it first hand! If you want a good referral.. check out this blog and Sign Language Product... infantsignlanguage.blogspot.com I think you will find it very good! It's worth it!

Incredulous to say the least! Also, very promising as it opens so many vistas of help and hope to those who are incapable of communicating for a variety of physiological reasons.

2008-03-17T13:53:00.000-04:00

I'm a huge believer in that teaching sign language to children as infants jump starts their language growth. It has been done with about 70% of my spectrum clients and has proven to be very effective. Very cool vignette.

2008-03-16T20:22:00.000-04:00

I think a large part of how well a child does in any endeavor is how much time the parents spending teaching them. I think that all children have the potential to be great and it's sad that some parents neglect it.

2008-03-16T13:18:00.000-04:00

How refreshing! In a world where we are constantly being bombarded with negativity, this little girl, Katie, was just a total doll! She is truly a gem!

2008-03-15T13:55:00.000-04:00

I agree that sign language has definite benefits for everyone. It would be nice if more hearing people did learn sign language.

Something I find interesting is that there are still those in the deaf community who get upset with other deaf individuals who decide to learn to speak.

Recently, on one of my podcasts, the guest was a woman who teaches parents sign language to their infants, starting at like 5 or so months of age. It was really remarkable what the children learned and how effective communication was for both the children and parents.

2008-03-13T13:28:00.000-04:00

Dear Angel,
I was so WOWED seeing this,

Dear HP,
It's a US based show, so I'm glad you could catch it on a vid-reply. Amazing, right?

Dear Lyre,
I am fluent in ASL and think knowing sign is a valuable thing. Go for it. You can find classes just about anywhere: University, Adult Ed, etc.

Dear Carie,
I think you and your daughter rock.

Dear Barbara,
She blew me away. And I wanted to reach into the tv and just kiss her.

Dear Fallen,
My parents said I was reading the newspaper at 2 years of age. But I bet it was sight reading and visual recognition more than the sounding out of words. This little girl and her skills were amazing. I'm a big believer in Sign Language being learned by the hearing world so the Deaf can be connected to us and vice versa.

Dear BB,
YOu are so right about that.

Dear SCott,
A cutie!

Dear Heiress,
I think dreams should be pursued...so I'll be looking for your GD on Idol soon ;)

Dear S'Onnie,
YEs as we age, our brains are less "elastic".

Dear Casdok,
Yup, I agree too.

Dear Annie,
Hey friend. I'll come by and visit.

Dear Donna,
Wasn't it a treat to see something amazing like that?

Dear Tai,
Sign is a very powerful language.

Dear Mysti,
I love when kids come home and share what they've seen or learned

Dear Saur,
So glad I could share it with you.

Dear Jeni,
I think he'd be impressed. I wonder if he saw it!

Dear Lone,
I doubt it, but can understand why others could think that. If you see, you tracks the letters with her eyes and sounds them out as she goes.

Dear Mel,
Sign Language has a deep and rich history. Deaf individuals have fought fiercely to validate it as a linguistic system. And it is a very real and very important language.

~Deb,
I wanted to squish her with kisses when she said morning Ann.

Dear Muser,
My fluency in Sign has definitley added much to my language and spatial skills. I recommend Signing all the time, and wish we could be a hearing society that becomes fluent in it.

Dear Cracker,
How fantastic that you have your own unique sign language. You are awesome!

Dear Ms. L,
I think it would be a very worthwhile experience.

~Deb

2008-03-13T12:51:00.000-04:00

I love that she's still a typical 17month old girl!

That was amazing!!
I'm wondering now if ASL would help JIg learn to read better..I should give it a try. Can't hurt!

2008-03-13T12:05:00.000-04:00

You read about my deaf friend and her passel of children in my last post...well, I'm sending this to her. How awesome. The kids all know ASL, learned it from babyhood, and are extremely fluent, though only one of the three so far is deaf.

My kid brother and I have a sign language, what is called a "home sign". Neither of us are deaf; it's just that I saw he could gesture a little bit (I'm 7 years older) and thought it was nicer than his crying. So we have a pretty sophisticated home sign, and have made each other laugh from across the room.

His wife takes ASL classes now--she wants to be a special ed teacher--and practices with him. He's better at it than she is. :-)

Oh, and both our wives "speak" our home sign language now, too.

It always does my heart good to see how the human need to communicate will prevail over any circumstance!

2008-03-12T21:05:00.000-04:00

I have always been a lousy speller, and when spelling aloud tend to "get my mords and wetters lixed," for example "s" and "c". But I learned fingerspelling as a child and noticed an improvement in my spelling as I used spelling words to practice fingerspelling. To this day I continue to use fingerspelling, both when learning new spelling and when having to spell words for others. Something happens between the brain and the tongue so that the latter stumbles when the former spells, but involving the fingers tidies everything up nicely. I've since recommended this technique to teachers and parents and have had very postive responses! (Though one teacher said she now has to watch her students' hands during tests to make sure that any fingerspelling is done as memory cues and not to help other students. New class rule: all fingerspelling hands must be kept in pockets or desks!)

2008-03-12T09:47:00.000-04:00

Absolutely amazing. I can't get over how well she pronounces "morning" and even "Ann"...

And I thought my niece and nephew were geniuses already learning to read in kindergarten!

It would be nice if everyone simply knew how to speak to one another, sign language, and even in various languages. Bringing the gap for everybody.

2008-03-12T06:26:00.000-04:00

Yes, sign language is the best thing that ever happened to all deaf and mute people. Suddenly there is an avenue for them to communicate with other people. Thanks for this valuable post. God bless you and your loved ones always.

2008-03-11T18:19:00.000-04:00

Wow, that is very interesting! Perhaps someone offstage was using sign language to tell her what word to say?? (Sorry, that's my stagehand mind thinking... LOL)

2008-03-11T14:14:00.000-04:00

Sign language seems to be a big step in developing brains towards better understanding of the written word. Friends of mine have their children learning SL and their reading skills are growing by leaps and bounds!
