Being able to communicate safety is critical. I recall a conversation with a mom of a deaf four year old. Mom said her son has been frustrated because he wanted to play at a playground across the street from their apartment. Mom shared that they haven’t gone because she can not communicate (verbally or sign) with her son about safety- not run across the street, having to hold hands, etc. So I told her I would practice going across the street, and take pictures & teach them safety signs. The first day he picked up on the safety signs and I made sure he understood the “rules”, and we had a great day at the park. Mom then gained confidence in her ability to communicate safety with her son. It made the world of a difference. #askmewhyisign#Repost@trayce_stoenescu with @get_repost
I love that they share this language. Can’t imagine it any other way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here Bear is teaching Mila what we say every time we cross the road. “Stop! Look, look! No cars? Safe!” #asl#whyisign@whyisign#deafkidsrock#signlanguage#americansignlanguage ...
دانشجوهای دانشگاه واشینگتون دستکشی به نام SignAloud ساختن که میتونه زبان اشاره رو به صوت تبدیل کنه بنابراین مردم عادی میتونن بدون نیاز به یادگیری زبان اشاره، این زبون رو متوجه بشن.
