Although this isn't a great article, it is so nice to see something in the mainstream press about it

Professor Bernstein is skeptical of some of the loftier claims. She said more scientifically controlled evidence was needed to persuade her that signing alone accelerates intellect or language development any more than long periods of one-on-one attention, reading and stimulating play. "I find that people in Los Angeles try to hook on to any new fad that comes along. They also have the money for it. You are not going to find this in areas where there is poverty," Bernstein said.
I guess she doesn't believe poor folks can read a book at a library. Why did they interview this "professor" ? She seems pretty unknowledgeable and unscientifically judgemental to me.

The rest of the article was pretty good!
