Very interesting. My grandchildren all learned to sign well before they
could speak - makes for very calm and contented children as they can
communicate so much earlier - also my daughter has had good results teaching
her nonverbal students with autism to sign, and success with one but not
another child with a severe stammer. Interestingly, one
student stammers when he signs as well, while the other signs smoothly.
