American Sign Language is a fantastic second language to pick up. It bridges the gap with those who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Signing at a young age can also benefit children who are special needs children.
Children that have special needs are able to use American Sign Language communicate with their caregivers and other people. Children that suffer from Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, aphasia and other language delays and impairments have used the ASL system to communicate with others.
Our ASL tutor can work with children of all ages and abilities, even adults, to help them master ASL as a second language. Heather can help with families with one or more members with hearing impairments to bridge the communication gap. Book an appointment with us today at Outside the Box: Creative Tutoring in Wyoming, MI, Grand Rapids, MI, and the Greater Grand Rapids, MI area.
