Sign Language Serves Several Purposes in the Classroom...
- Sign Language increases vocabulary and communication, and it relieves frustration due to communication issues.
- Sign Language activates additional parts of the brain during learning, and the rule of thumb is that the more parts of the brain we engage during learning, the deeper the learning goes!
- Sign Language provides similar benefits to a child's developing brain as when learning other foreign languages.
- Sign Language exposes children to the world of the deaf and hard of hearing, contributing to their cultural competence and understanding of disabilities.
