Language First Lab


What is language first lab?

Every deaf child has the right to learn a first language effortlessly from birth. This is the mission of Language First Lab. Language must be the first intervention, over speech perception and listening skills. It is necessary for proper brain development.

Promoting spoken language over sign language is the underlying issue. A deaf child is entitled to both. It is their choice which one works best for them.

Language First Lab serves as a resource for parents of deaf children and professionals in deaf education. Browse handouts, videos, and research to help further understanding of the importance of early and robust access to sign language for deaf children.
