I want my diaper changed. "I want to go to sleep." These are two of many examples of what a pre-verbal child can communicate through American Sign Language. Using the work of researcher Joseph Garcia, founder of the business Sign with Your Baby, as a platform, this program illustrates the benefits and positive implications of introducing ASL to children regardless of whether their hearing is impaired. Parent/child ASL creates a new source of bonding while reducing the frustrations associated with point-and-cry communication-without delaying normal speech development.
