L. Guerrini was always fascinated by American Sign Language during her undergraduate and graduate work as language majors and minors, and in her doctoral work in the area of Second Language Acquisition. The birth of her son gave her even more incentive to learn and use ASL for many reasons: in the early months, signing was a great tool to use with her husband while the baby was sleeping; signing was an additional source of soothing during medical visits (baby loved watching his name finger-spelled); signing provided a type of play that produced the greatest outbursts of baby laughter; and gradually, for the little one, signing is becoming an important form of communication. Among L. Guerrinis many goals is the attempt to spread the news about ASL for babies and toddlers -- and to bridge the gap between the hearing and Deaf/hard of hearing populations. And, if your baby has developmental issues or communicative disorders like Apraxia, your little one will gain so much from learning this valuable language.
