early childhood education, American Sign Language, nonverbal communication
At a young age children cannot express needs or wants through vocal language. They cry, babble, point, and scream to get the attention of others. Children also kick, bite, hit, and yell when others do not understand them. Giving young infants and toddlers tools to communicate to parents and teachers alleviates frustrations and reduces problem behaviors. American Sign Language has been proven to do just that and this capstone will give resources for parents and teachers to communicate to children through the use of sign language.
