Teach your Kids Sign Language with MaxiAids Flash cards, DVDs, Books & More

Teaching your kids American Sign Language (ASL) is extremely beneficial to their overall education, considering ASL is a universal language. Children can start learning at home as early as six months, or until their hand control is developed enough, in order to get a head start on ASL teachings when they go to school.

One of the many benefits of teaching children American Sign Language while simultaneously learning English is they will utilize both sides of their brain. Educational Playcare states research proves when children learn sign language at a young age it can have positive effects such as speeding up their speech development, increasing bonding between parents and children, allowing babies to communicate information before they can verbally speak, which gives them a way to express themselves before they can speak, thus leading to reduction in frustration in young children.

As your one-stop-shop for deaf aids and products, MaxiAids offers the lowest prices on the largest selection of American Sign Language aids such as flash cards, DVDs, books and more.
