How do Deaf Children Develop Sign Language? – Online Webinar
We’re delighted to welcome Kate Rowley from DCAL (Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre) at UCL (University College London). Kate shares aspects of her research in linguistics and sign language and more specifically: This webinar will describe how deaf children learn sign language, with a detailed description of the important milestones in sign language acquisition. Parallels with spoken language acquisition will also be discussed along with similarities and differences in the two modalities (sign and spoken language). This course will also explain the impact of late access to language on deaf children, again with parallels to cases of delayed language in hearing children. This presentation is delivered in British Sign Language, and interpreted into English.
