I am so glad to hearing from you about the project
in Nicaragua. I have been working with Literacy and
I agree with you. There is no magic! Literacy is
a process in which children register things, ideas,
thinkings... And the natural way to do this is
through a writing system that can express the
language. In case of sign language, sw is the way.
The standard writing systems can not express
the mechanisms that are specific from sign languages.
Nicaragua is an example for the world! I want to
recognize your work, James, since it is wonderful
that you believe and you are doing all to make this
