The power of visual language is helping all kinds of learners acquire language skills, reading comprehension, early childhood socialization skills, and the benefits of exposure to a new language, and specific benefits of learning American Sign Language. Research has shown learning ASL helps memory, attention and decoding. Teachers and parents do not need to know how to sign. ASL Tales has expert signing storytellers on the DVD that comes with each book. Spoken translations to up to ten different languages enables the inclusion of English learners.
More ASL can be learned at ASLTales.net. Look for “ASL Clues.”
