Dear SW List, and Ingvild!
Thanks for this message...I am concerned that we have become so
focused on learning how to use the SW Fingerspelling Fonts, that we
will forget your special request...
Is there anyone on the List who can help Ingvild?
Do you know of any research that shows that Deaf children need
contact with other Deaf children to be happy?
