Val,

I know about Framingham Center for the Deaf in Massachusetts because I used
live in Framingham, Mass. Yes, I know a lot about this. When I graduate and
I use work there for watching kids at lunch and play very short time.

After reading your stories about Clark School for the Deaf being so oral, I
am sure you can see why they were against SignWriting!

That was back in 1977. As a dancer interested in languages, it never dawned
on me that anyone could be against signing. American Sign Language seemed
so beautiful to me.

So Clark school was my "education" on oralism.

It would be fun to take SignWriting to the Boston School for the Deaf, to
see if they would be interested. There has been some interest from the
Framingham Center for the Deaf in Massachusetts now.
