Kristin Snoddon

American Sign Language and Early Intervention

Snoddon presents two research studies on Deaf and hearing parents and young children participating in family ASL and literacy programs in Ontario, Canada. Collectively, the findings from these studies highlight the benefits of emergent ASL and literacy, and provide an evidence-based rationale for governments and government agencies to better support this development through partnerships with the Deaf ASL community.
