Kids absorb knowledge like sponges, so why not take advantage of it? SLP Cheri Chin, from the blog “If Only I Had Superpowers,” gives tips on how to introduce signing, how to let children guide what they want to learn and how to make it part of your daily practice with them. Who knows where it will lead?
“Elementary age kids are learning so many things! They are learning grammar, complex vocabulary, reading and writing. What a great idea to add another language onto this skill set as well! This is a life-changing age to learn a new skill set. For example, I learned how to sign the alphabet in second grade and this later played a crucial role in my decision to go to grad school in speech pathology. A friend of mine learned to sign with her deaf neighbor friend, and now she is a professional interpreter.”
