My thesis project in linguistics aims to determine the place of gestures in the language development of typically developing children. In particular, this project will seek to measure the impact of Baby Sign on adult-child communication and on the language development of children attending daycare. Baby Sign is described as the use of signs from local sign language by adults for hearing children who do not yet speak.
