I loved seeing this video of a kid’s babbling in ASL sign language – this is a typically developing kid who’s been exposed 24/7 to ASL since babyhood.
I find information about kids babbling is really useful to me because I think a lot of people don’t notice and/or forget how much language typical kids take in and how much they babble before we really see them developing purposeful language that the adults around them can understand. For us hearing folk, seeing the process in ASL makes it a bit clearer because it’s less familiar. Next time you see a kid apparently hitting random words in on their AAC device, think about this!
