Come and participate with us in the launch of the bilingual children's book (Libras-SignWriting and Portuguese) entitled: "Telasco and his class in: "The legend of Manguda."
The event will take place in the auditorium of the Core of Technologies for Education (UEMAnet) of the Maranhão State University (UEMA), at 15:00 on November 09 (Thursday). The solemnity will also feature a live stream on YouTube platform, via the official UEMA channel.
The book reveals the mysteries surrounding the legend of Manguda in a fun way to be told by the Telasco gang made up of deaf characters, who are and were part of the local history, and were made into illustrations marked in Libra.
Dear Valerie: This book is for free. It's purpose is to help physicians and nurses and speech language pathologists to provide better health services to deaf people. SignWriting is part of this labor of love. It will always be. You'll always be in our hearts. Many blessings, dear friend.
Thank you so much, Fernando! Val ;-)

Sutton Movement Writing & Shorthand is a way to read & write all body movement. It is a script with 5 parts: DanceWriting, SignWriting, MimeWriting, SportsWriting & MovementWriting. DanceWriting was invented by Valerie Sutton in 1972 followed by SignWriting in Denmark in 1974. The SignWriter Newspaper written in American Sign Language (ASL) was published 1981-1984. The SignWriter Computer Program, a sign language processor for typing SignWriting, began in 1986 by Richard Gleaves. The Deaf Action Committee for SignWriting (DAC), a team of Deaf ASL signers, was founded by Lucinda O'Grady in 1988. The DAC influenced the development of SignWriting, now used to write over 40 sign languages around the world. In 2004, software developer Stephen E Slevinski Jr began a collaboration with Valerie Sutton to develop web-based software and font encoding for the SignWriting Script. The collaboration continues in 2020. Slevinski developed SignPuddle software and the SignWriting TrueType Fonts, establishing the Sutton SignWriting Software Standard.
