Do children learn sign language if their parents use Sign-supported Dutch?
Clifton Langdon (Gallaudet University): language in the brain
Sign language at home
"Guus sometimes helps Sam if he doesn't sign something correctly."
"Signing has gotten better over the years."
"They can really babble together in sign language."
"Those Lotte & Max DVDs are amazing, for both parents and children. They help you learn really quickly."
"We often have the computer turned on: the archives of the Handtheater has lots of fun things for the children."
Should you even want to learn to sign as a parent, or can your child learn from other deaf people as well?
"I do think signing at home is going to be important to Fabian."
"I sing Fabian a lullaby using signs, and I noticed that helped me learn signs as well."
"My parents thought it was important to eat together and talk together."
"My children know they have to use sign language with me."
"If I don't know a certain sign, I ask my son."
