This webinar will outline the benefits of using sign language to support emergent speech in late-talking toddlers. Because gestures develop before speech, sign language is a natural way to bridge the gap from non-verbal to verbal communication. Many people believe that using sign language will delay the onset of speech, however, the research shows that signing can be a springboard for speech and language development. This course will provide specific signing strategies for parents and speech-language pathologists, guidelines on selecting first signs, and what steps to follow when signing isn’t “working” as expected.
As a result of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Explain the benefits of using sign language with hearing children.
- Demonstrate how to make signs salient using the concept of “motherese” or “parentese” signing.
- Summarize what to do when sign language isn’t working as expected.
