SignWriting List
November 2, 2000

But it was a well-written soapbox, Cheryl - That was a good message.
Thanks for that. It only makes sense that children need to have good
language role models...

Your idea about joining the List for "Parents of Hard-of-Hearing or
Deaf Children" is a good idea. If anyone needs information on how to
join that List, write to me privately. I have that information.

The Parent's List is also a good List to discuss the issues
surrounding Cochlear Implants....since it is usually the parents who
ultimately make those choices for their children...
