Sign language helps YMCA day care children communicate, connect
WILLMAR -- At 15 months, Alyssa Peterson is rapidly building up a vocabulary.
She can say "milk," "more," "please" and "all done" -- all in sign language.

"I had no idea that it would be that successful a communication tool," said Heather Peterson. "It cuts down on a lot of the frustration."
