Description

 

In this recording, you will learn to recognize and demonstrate 100 signs and incorporate them into your practice right away.

Sign language isn’t only used by the Deaf community; it is often used by children with general speech and language delays and disorders, developmental delays, childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, and hearing loss. One effective way to communicate with this population is through sign language. However, many don’t have time to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). Course instructor, Jill Eversmann, is here to help! In this recording, you will learn to recognize and demonstrate 100 basic signs, the manual alphabet, and numbers from 1-20 as well as how to incorporate them into your practice immediately.
