“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I
— Benjamin Franklin
You may have heard people say, “I am a visual learner” or “I learn
better hands-on.” This is one of the reasons that sign language is
so beneficial. By pairing signs with speech, we utilize all
styles of learning – auditory (we hear the word spoken), visual (we
see the word signed), and kinesthetic (we form the sign ourselves).
When we use a variety of learning styles or techniques in order to
learn new concepts, we have a greater capacity to retain that
information. When we “involve” our children — they learn!!
