"Does Sign Language Delay Speech?"

Does signing delay speech? Watch this and decide for yourself. Share with parents, educators, IEP's, everyone you know.



  1. I wish everyone with small kids would watch this video. Children that can communicate their wants and needs have fewer tantrums. It bugs me when people say that sign language will delay a child's speech. Not being able to communicate with others can be very aggravating.

  2. I think there is some truth in it, and not only children, but adults who acquire deafness too, it can be so easy to slip into non-speech mode while using sign, I have to consciously fight that tendency every day. The 'trick' is to start speaking and always then to maintain that even when signing.
