Intellectual/CognitiveDevelopment through Baby Sign Language – My Smart Hands Saskatoon

Research shows that using ASL signs, rather than made up gestures, strengths neurological brain connection. This means the activities that we use in our classes, increases and promotes intellectual/cognitive development.

An example of an activity is our ‘shake’ bottles. These bottles are often filled with water, and various other items such as sparkles, pom poms, pipe cleaners,  and buttons. Together, the parent and their child, shake the bottle and watch the changes. The specific brain development concept that is being learn is called, cause and effect. This activity is completed in our “toy/object” theme.
