Transcription for people with low vision or blindness:

  • Makes you mentally more agile: RIT University research shows that early exposure to Sign Language improves mental skills related to executive functions.
  • Stops the progress of arthritis: organizations from Mexico and Chile have successfully launched projects to learn their Sign Languages in older people, obtaining the same results as traditional therapies.
