The Effect of Repetition in Sign Language Acquisition in Infants
Grade Level: Late Elementary all the way to High School, depending on the complexity of the project. Type: Other (Psychology)
Infants can usually communicate long before they can actually speak understandable words. An entire industry has sprung up around the use of ASL ( American Sign Language) in communicating with babies, but there is very little experimental evidence that it is effective. That’s not to say it doesn’t work, but quantitative data about how well it works is rare. This project aims to provide just that.
