Try to watch without captions and see how much you can understand. Watching and then understanding others sign is one of the first steps to becoming more fluent. When we are babies, we don't automatically know what every word means. We experience language modeling and repetition. The same is true when we try to learn a second language. We need patience, repetition, and language modeling.

Audrey is 15 months old and has been signing since she was 7 months old. Sign language is a great learning tool and a wonderful way for parents and children to bond. The time spent teaching, playing, and interacting has benefits for all children and parents. More info: www.lead-k.org

"We need the public to realize that learning a sign language is not a risk. It has benefits. Not learning a sign language is a risk," Peter Hauser, a neuropsychologist and director of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf Center on Cognition and Language

Learn sign language and if you know parents of a Deaf child, send them our way to learn sign language or to add to their language skills. Parents shouldn't feel like their child is going to surpass them in language acquisition with ASL. Deaf kiddos need their parents to communicate with them and we can be a starting point for acquiring that language. Hospitals should be required to give information on where to find a local sign language class or Deaf community. Let's help these kids have the same opportunities as their hearing counterparts!
