American Sign Language Enrichment Class

American Sign Language Class at Talent Prep

When children are taught English and Sign Language together,

they are processing language using both sides of their brains.

They process verbal sounds on the left side of the brain and

American Sign Language (ASL) as pictures and images on the

right side of the brain, giving them two places from which to

recall language. Our ASL curriculum combines ASL learning

with music, academic content, and different enrichment elements.

Your child will not only learn a unique and useful language

through this class but also get benefits for their cognitive

development and become a better learner!

How Can ASL Benefits Your Child

ASL is now classified as a world language, the same as Spanish, French, or any other foreign language. Therefore, if a child speaks sign language, the child is considered bilingual. Research has found that the use of signs and finger spelling will accommodate a wide range of learning styles: “verbal linguistic,” kinesthetic” and “interpersonal.” Using ASL is the representation of information through seeing, hearing, and movement, and the more pathways that are created in the brain, the stronger the memory. Studies also show long-term cognitive benefits, including:

+12 IQ point advantage

Accelerated speech and emotional development

Improves attentiveness to social gestures of others

as well as of themselves

Boost Communication Skills

Enables children to communicate effectively

Reinforces the learning of educational concepts

such as ABC’s, animals, and other specific themes

Lowers frustration levels

Better grades in school
