Sign Language

Two or more of our staff members use American Sign Language at word, sentence and beginning conversational levels. All staff members know a core vocabulary. Sign language is used in early childhood as a bridge to verbal communication. It is also used in a multisensory/multimodality approach to treat language learning disorders and childhood aphasia of speech. Use of a visual sign can aid in memory and concept development which results in better word recall/retrieval of verbal speech and language.
