Hello Everyone -
Welcome to all the new members. I really enjoyed reading your introductions!

Anacorina Lola asked this question in her introduction...

"I think this would be a good time to ask if anyone has been in Nicaragua
doing such work, to contact me and tell me about it. I would love to hear
about your experiences. I would love to know how you got involved and
also if it something you can do while you are still in school? Also, I
will be going to Nicaragua to visit family and friends in August, and
would love to see some of this work in action, or just get some more

Hi Anacorina - We do have information on our web site about SignWriting in
Nicaragua, and on those web pages you will find the names and email
addresses of several people whom you should contact, including James and
Judy Shepard Kegl, and Janice Gangel-Vasquez. Here are some web pages to

Literacy In Nicaraguan Sign Language

SignWriting In Nicaragua

Deaf Children Write SignWriting

and information on other web sites:

I personally like the latter web page, at Brown Alumni Magazine, because of
the SignWriting in the background!!

I will answer your other questions tomorrow :-)

Have a great evening -

Valerie Sutton :-)
