Reasons it is useful for children to simultaneously learn the one hand alphabet
- sometimes called fingerspelling or signing - and written alphabet letters:
For communication with those who are hard of hearing, deaf, have a temporary speech impediment such as a stroke or tracheotomy, or one who cannot speak, but can sign.
The one hand alphabet needs only one hand - either right or left - to make the shapes.
From my own experience it was easy to learn the one hand alphabet letters on my non-dominant after learning on my dominant hand - under one hour total for both hands.
Making the hand signs is a kinesthetic resource in learning to write the alphabet; each finger shape is completely different - none are possibly confusing opposites like 'b' and 'd' in the written alphabet.
