OT: Bragging!
I am so excited that I just got my results from my RID test and I am now a Nationally Certified Sign Language Interpreter! Had to share the news!

I am too excited to work on the baby blanket I am working on for a woman at my work!

that's awesome! you should be so proud of yourself! I always wanted to learn ASL, and I know a little, but to be an interpreter? That's so cool!

Congratulations! I took a sign class in college (I majored in Speech Path in college but didn't finish :crying: )
Anyhow, I've been seeing a lot of info and such about teaching sign language to kids even without hearing loss. I am really interested in this for my two little nephews, and perhaps someday my own kids. A friend of mine is a speech path special needs teacher and her little guy has learned more words in sign than he knows with normal speech through her work. she finds he's not as temperamental about not being able to communicate with her when he wants something.
very cool for you! signing is such a beautiful way to communicate!

me and my brothers and sister learned to sign before we could talk. It provided a way to communicate with my brother when he was non-verbal until he was 4, and a way for us to communicate with each other when speech would have been inappropriate.

I taught my Kids ASL when they were toddlers
now if I need to talk to them over distance, or in a Loud are, I just sign
they know if I use ASL, they have NO EXCUSE to say they did not hear me
looking away is rude and WRONG
I mix it up and throw in new words every week or so, then they keep learning
I find their vocab improves by 5-6 words for every new one I throw in without telling them

Did I tell you all I am a MEAN MOMMY?
