Do you think it’s practical to teach babies sign language?
Asked at Hastings, 1900 W. 23rd St. on June 3, 2005
“I don’t know how practical it would be, but it might be another way to teach them to communicate.”
“Sure. Babies can learn lots of things very quickly. Why not sign language?”
“Yes I do, because they can’t communicate verbally yet, but they can express themselves with their hands.”
“I’ve heard scientists say that babies can understand sign language before verbal language. So I think it would be practical.”
