You Can Make Deaf Welcome: Learn American Sign Language (Paperback)
"You Can Make Deaf Welcome, Learn American Sign Language" is the first in a series of Deaf Welcome reference guides to promote communication, hospitality and Deaf inclusion. Teachers, shop owners, actors, worship leaders, and students are encouraged to purchase this book to engage in a multicultural experience. Deaf Culture is fascinating and full of unique, often surprising experiences. Readers should copy each sign depicted in the book with a native signer, interpreter or signing educator. You will put a smile on the face of your Deaf neighbors, customers, students, and friends. The goal is to learn to sign naturally, with the proper hand-shape, palm orientation, and facial expression. You are encouraged to log your use of each sign and discuss your experiences in class or with your Sign Language group. Enjoy your practice time Sales from this book supports the Deaf Welcome Foundation, the 501(c)(3) National Charity for Sign Language TV, Media and Film, as well as the ILY Television Network - scheduled to begin airing in 2016.
