The Signing Family shows parents how to create a set of goals for signing centered around the needs of their deaf child, then describes in even-handed terms the major signing options available: American Sign Language, Signed English, Signing Exact English, and Contact Sign. Parents will learn how each of these signing methods originated and, in the case of English signing systems, why they were created and what they are meant to impart to deaf children. Parents will also learn their legal rights in the education of their child and how to work with schools to provide their sign preference in the child's classroom.

Barron's E-Z Series books are updated, and re-formatted editions of Barron's older and perennially popular Easy Way books. Titles in the new E-Z Series feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever.

Language in motion : exploring the nature of sign by Jerome Daniel Schein( Book )

Language in Motion: Exploring the Nature of Sign invites readers on a journey of exploration into the fascinating nature of American Sign Language (ASL) and its relationship to other sign languages and sign systems used around the world. In a warm, conversational style, this enjoyable book first introduces sign language and communication, offers a history of sign languages in general, then delves into the structure of ASL. Later chapters limn the special skills of fingerspelling and assess the academic offshoots of artificial sign systems and their value to young deaf children. Once readers have become familiar with the attributes of ASL, Language in Motion offers for consideration the process required to learn sign language and to put sign language to work to communicate in the Deaf community, which is also described in absorbing detail. Appendices featuring the manual alphabets of three countries and a notation system developed to write signs complete this enriching book. Its delightful potpourri of entertaining, accessible knowledge makes it a perfect primer for those interested in learning more about sign language, Deaf Culture, and Deaf communities

Teaching deaf and hard of hearing students : content, strategies, and curriculum by David Alan Stewart( Book )

"The principles upon which instructional planning proceeds are applicable to deaf students at all grade levels; thus, the book is suitable for teachers at the elementary through high school levels. These principles are diverse but revolve around four central themes: 1) Creating authentic experiences; 2) Integrating vocabulary development; 3) Creating opportunities for self-expression; and 4) Providing deaf role models. When applicable, distinctions are made between the various instructional roles of teachers in self-contained classrooms, resource room teachers, and itinerant teachers, as well as general education teachers who have deaf students in their classrooms."
