Hi Shane!
My experience has been that any age is fine! Reading and writing is  
good for people whether they be age 3 or age

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, I know of a child age 5 that was  
introduced to SignWriting and she could read it quickly...teacher Dr.  
Cecilia Flood...I can find that documentation if you wish...

Stefan...what age are they learning in Germany?

Juliette...what age are they learning in France?

Kathleen or Thierry...what age in Belgium?

James...what age in Nicaragua?

Val ;-)
