Research and experience have shown that signing helps many students learn to read. The Signing for Reading Success booklet explains this concept, why it works, who it works for, and how to implement it in a classroom.

       The booklet provides summaries of four research studies on the usefulness of signing for reading achievement. It also suggests a methodology for a single-subject research study that teachers can conduct to validate for themselves the findings presented.
