Tede’s new friends – My focus in education is now learning non-verbal communicate using the Baby Sign Language Dictionary – Fun being a “nanny” and playing with my granddaughter.
Reading John Medina’s book “Brain Rules for Babies” reinforced what I have known. “Learning Sign Language may boost cognition by 50 percent…. Attention focus, spatial abilities, memory, and visual discrimination scores improved…. Interacting with other people, not computer time, not television time … brain needs interaction with you, in person.”
We need to build non-verbal communication skills! Which can help build verbal skills.
