LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – Babies, believe it or not, have a lot to say even before they can talk. In fact, research suggest that kids as young as six months old can communicate using sign language.
That is why the Rhodes Ranch Learning Experience childcare center is teaching kids sign language.
Students ranging in age from 6 months to 5 years are studying American Sign Language. Every month, they learn one or more new signs, and teachers repeat the sign until children recall it. It’s known as observational learning.
“It’s just constant so you like have to constantly do it, the repetition, so they can pick it up with their hands,” said Barbara Marin, The Learning Experience. “It may not look like it at first but it’ll be like similar to it so we’ll know what they mean.”
