The purpose of sharing #whyIsign narratives

Families are still not given resources or support about including signing with their ddbddldhh children. Families often feel alone in their signing journey. For most, their baby is the first deaf person they meet. They often are nervous and scared to connect with the deaf community. Our diverse communities often desire to connect with hearing families, but lack knowledge of where families are & how to reach out.

 Through sharing #whyIsign narratives, people can:

  • Connect with deaf & hard of hearing children to other families

  • Connect to DDBDDHHLD & the diverse communities within

  • Connect with the signing communities (CODA’s, students, friends, community members, etc.)

  • Share resources and information about resources of raising a deaf and hard of hearing child

  • Understand that sign language is a right, not an option

This is a free resource provided by Gallaudet University’s Motion Light Lab. Motion Light Lab is a space where creative literature intersects with digital technology to create immersive learning experiences. Motion Light Lab is part of the National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center on Visual Language and Visual Learning.

In light of COVID-19, we are staying home and figuring out resources for our children. Here, they are putting together activities, ideas, videos to support your child’s learning at home. A major focus of their activities will be based off on their award-winning VL2 Storybook Apps. They are making our apps available for free, at specific times. Please keep checking in for updates.
