Hi im Jaki i have three kids and they are not deaf. My girls made a friend who is deaf and my girls want to learn how to speak sign language. So what we have been doin is learning on youtube and it has help us alot. I too have been learning, i feel its good to learn how just cause you can hear dose'nt mean you cant learn. I wish my girls knw a long time ago but never late then never right? My girls are so happy that they knw how to say how are you, nice to meet you, and her fav is i learnign a little sign! She says mommy friend is going to be so proud that im trying just for her, i told her yes sweetie she is and that is great cause we love everyone for who they are.

More than just those who are hearing impaired benefit from signing.



Some kids learn how to sign before they learn how to talk. It's a great tool! Good job on promoting and helping your kids learn how to communicate with their friend!

Hi I teach ASL, Signing Time is a great way to learn ASL, I believe that sign language is not just for Deaf people, its great for everyone and many different disability have been proven to benefit from ASL including down syndrome. Check out signing time you will find the host history on why she started up the story will help you.

That's lovely Jaki. I'm sure their friend (and her Mum) are very touched at the effort your girls have made. That's what friendship is all about.
