Sign Language for Babies and Beyond

Sign Language Utilizes Several Learning Styles

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn!"    --Benjamin Franklin--

You may have heard people say, "I am a visual learner" or "I learn better hands-on."  This is one of the reasons that sign language is so beneficial.  By pairing signs with speech, we  utilize all styles of learning - auditory (we hear the word spoken), visual (we see the word signed), and kinesthetic (we form the sign ourselves).  When we use a variety of learning styles or techniques in order to learn new concepts, we have a greater capacity to retain that information.  When we "involve" our children -- they learn!!
