Learning the ASL alphabet
If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out my post on teaching preschoolers the ASL alphabet for some helpful hints on how to remember all the signs. Learning the alphabet of a language is so important for language acquisition but it is extra important in ASL because of finger spelling and many signs are based on letters.
Why should preschoolers learn ASL?
Like I mentioned above, I truly believe that ASL is a great language for children to learn. According to this post from Educational Playcare there are some fantastic benefits for children who are learning ASL including:
- +12 IQ point advantage
- Accelerated speech and emotional development
- Reinforcement of learning of educational concepts such as ABC’s, animals, and other specific themes
- Helps children remember words because there is muscle memory involved, and the more senses involved in learning, the greater memory retention the child will have
- Improves attentiveness to social gestures of others as well as of themselves
- Larger speaking vocabulary and ability to form longer sentences
- Earlier reading and larger reading vocabulary
I am really blown a way by all the benefits there are from learning ASL! I do think there’s something about the physical motion that helps children learn the alphabet faster.
