Sign language is an essential tool for children who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate with the world around them. It can also be a fun and engaging way for hearing children to learn a new language and improve their communication and social skills. With the rise of mobile technology, there are now many sign language apps available that can make learning sign language more accessible and convenient for children. Our favirite is ASL-kids 😉
Why should I use a Sign Language app?
By utilizing the visual, auditory, and tactile senses, apps can greatly enhance children’s learning and aid in their retention of new information. An app like ASL Kids, which focuses on American Sign Language, can play a crucial role in increasing parental involvement in the rehabilitation process for children with special needs. By providing an interactive and engaging platform for learning, ASL Kids can not only improve the child’s communication skills but also foster a stronger bond between parent and child. Furthermore, the app’s focus on American Sign Language allows children with hearing impairments or speech difficulties to communicate more effectively and independently. Overall, ASL Kids is a valuable tool for supporting the development and growth of children with special needs.

Why this app?
When we found out our son had hearing loss, our whole family was eager to learn sign language. That was when we discovered that our kids benefited from interactive visual material. However, it was hard to find suitable apps on signing specifically designed for kids. The next thing we knew, we had decided to design one ourselves.
How do children learn best? By imitating other kids! My son loves this app, and I hope you will too.
