Uploaded: January 4, 2013 |  0 Comments  | 

Participants learned about new and emerging research supporting the early use of American Sign Language (ASL), fingerspelling, and other forms of visual communication. They were presented with information and strategies for improving children’s language outcomes. Current beliefs and attitudes about Deaf Education (including Early Intervention) were explored and compared with preliminary findings from a national longitudinal study. Each participant received a draft copy of a new assessment tool: Deaf & Hard of Hearing Children’s Visual Communication & Sign Language Milestones.
