"Kids R Bi-Bi": Sign Talk Development Project.
Evans, Charlotte; Zimmer, Kyra
Sign Talk Development Project (STDP) is a four-pronged project that grows out of needs identified through the program of Sign Talk Children's Centre (STCC). STCC is a bilingual/bicultural day care for children of deaf parents in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The center offers programming in two languages, American Sign Language (ASL) and English; and in two cultures, Deaf and Hearing, for children ages 2 to 5 years. Videotape and naturalistic data collected during the first year of the STDP are discussed. The percentage of children with language delays at STCC is 20%, significantly lower than that reported at the time of the initial assessment in 1988. Results are discussed with respect to hearing children of hearing parents; deaf children of deaf parents; deaf children of hearing parents, and hearing children of deaf parents. The future of the STDP is discussed. (Contains 2 references.) (Author/JP)
