Sign Language Increases IQ Scores by 12 Points!
Did you know that studies show that children's IQ scores can increase to an average of 12 points when they learn sign language during the preschool years? Teaching a second language in the preschool years including sign language aids in vocabulary, language skills, reading readiness, communication, sight word retention and enhances fine motor skills.
Recently, while on vacation my family and I were eating at a pizza pub and a lovely family walked in to eat. They sat right behind us where my four-year-old daughter could see them. She is not a shy child and immediately began waving and talking with their little boy. We noticed that his parents and grandparents were communicating by using sign language. She had many questions about sign language while we were eating. And now, I am happy to be sharing quality products that can help her with communicating with children in their special language. As a homeschool parent, I believe these new DVD's will make a great addition to any homeschool library, daycare, church or local library.
