An infant with a hearing impairment is exposed to sign language in the home. We can expect that this infant will most likely:

▸ babble and produce words gesturally more often than vocally.

▸ show little understanding of sign language during this period, since it is a highly abstract symbol system that even adults find challenging to learn.

▸ learn to use signs to communicate effectively with peers as she nears 18 months of age.

▸ use primitive, playful gestures to emulate sign language, but these will as yet have no meaning.
