Resources

ASL Access Video Collections
Christine Wixtrom is a homeschool parent who runs a fully volunteer non-profit organization with a mission for placement of ASL videos in public libraries. She has overseen the placement of fourteen ASL Access Video Collections, nationwide. Ten are open, and four more will come, soon. Perhaps you could help, too.

Described and Captioned Media Program
We are a free-lending library of open-captioned videos. We are funded by the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the National Association of the Deaf. Currently, we have around 4,000 captioned videos in our collection and are adding more each year.

National Cued Speech Association
Cued Speech is a sound-based visual communication system which, in English, uses eight handshapes in four different locations (“cues”) in combination with the natural mouth movements of speech, to make all the sounds of spoken language look different.

Sign Language

Deaf Son and Dad Signing At Dinner
An excellent example of the natural language learning and communication that goes on with signing deaf children. Thanks to ASL used in our home, our son (who we brought home just 5 months ago when he had zero language) is already able to visit with him about our trip to China and he understands basic concepts of our answer.

SignBankSite
Sign writing allows you to read and write in sign language, to learn it and do research. It allows stories and plays to be written in sign language specifically.
