Welcome, Brooke, to the SignWriting List!
And thank you for your introduction. I am happy to know that
SignWriting will be used with your deaf students...
There is another teacher, Robin Homesley, and also an interpreter,
Donna Thompson, who work together in North Carolina, at the New
Century Middle School and Union Pines High School.
Robin used SignWriting last year to teach a profoundly deaf student
that is also mentally disabled. I understand that the student did
very well with SignWriting and read and wrote for the first time in
And it was Donna who took the brave "first step" with SignWriting
with deaf students, and found that they read SignWriting quickly
I would suggest contacting them. Perhaps you can support each other?:
