*  A complete first language for children with hearing loss or who are unable to use verbal speech

*  A second language used by over a half million Americans

*  Earlier communication with pre-verbal infants

*  Bridging the communication gap with children who have speech-delays

*  Better language acquisition and retention in preschoolers
