The first language of a five year old girl named Claire Koch is American Sign Language. She is not deaf, but her two parents are. During her school holiday concert, Claire surprised her parents and the entire assembly by signing the songs. She absolutely stole the show.
The Kidmunication Point
At Kidmunicate, we say that communication is a gift, some are born with it and some need a lift. As a pediatric speech pathology clinic, we typically see parents lifting the spirits of their kids with words of encouragement. This story is so heartwarming because the kid, Claire Koch, lifts the spirits of her two deaf parents, her class and thanks to YouTube, the world.
