The Benefits of Teaching Sign Language to Children

     Howard Gardner, psychologist and educator, established himself as an expert on the topic of intelligences. Gardner’s Theory of Intelligences has had a profound impact on the thinking and practices in education. Teaching young children sign language utilizes the 7 Multiple Intelligences coined by Dr. Gardner:

  • Linguistic: You always say the word that you are signing.
  • Logical-Mathematical: Children see the pattern of language and how it is formed.
  • Spatial: Children see the signs being created.
  • Bodily-Kinesthetic: Signing involves the movement of hands, students can ‘feel’ the words.
  • Musical: It is easy to add signs to familiar songs and nursery rhymes.
  • Interpersonal: Children can sign with a teacher, parent, or friends.
  • Intrapersonal: Children sign during pretend play, while listening to a story, or playing on their own.
