Sign Lanugage – A Multi-Sensory Approach to Communicating

Not all children respond to the same methods of teaching, especially those with special needs. Sign language has benefits for both those with and without hearing as it is a multi-sensory language!

Children faced with conditions such as austim and Down Syndrome can find some level of comfort in sign language, as it can be taught through both sight and sound. It also has applications in teaching children other ideas, such as proper social actions, speaking and discipline. By opening up another means of communications, parents are more able to properly communicate with their children!

Nothing shows that sign language hurts special needs children. In fact, it can be a great way for them to convey themselves when they are unable to vocalize their wants and needs. This can even help children with motor function disabilities such as cerebral palsy, as they can form signs similar to the proper ones, allowing another avenue of communication.

SignShine® offers many classes and programs for those interested in learning how to sign with their children. Contact SignShine® today to find out how you can get started!
