Provides a great introduction into the world of American Sign Language. When a child learns sign language they are strengthening both sides of their brain. The right side for visual/motor skills (signing) and the left side for oral language skills. Learning ASL and finger spelling is multi-sensory, it combines both doing and seeing. The children see, hear, and move their body. Eye/hand coordination and small muscle development are greatly enhanced. Learning ASL is a high-interest activity that improves attention, self esteem, sensitivity to others and provides for inclusion of special populations. It is a fun way to engage young children in the learning process.
