The target article highlights the utility of new technology to study sign language and gesture. Research in special populations - specifically, individuals with autism spectrum disorder, ASD - may further illuminate sign/gesture similarities and differences and lead to a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of growth and change. Even verbally fluent speakers with ASD display distinctive qualities in sign and gesture.
