ASK Angie ASL – Healthy and Strong
Healthy and Strong
This issue is devoted to “Health”. The signs used in this video are all related to signs that describe “health – related” issues you may encounter. They fit nicely with the “sentence-starters” from last month.
It’s important to remember that not all people can lipread. Lip-reading is a skill that often requires a background knowledge of phonics. Only 28% of the English language is formed on the outside of the mouth. The rest of the sounds are formed on the inside of the mouth. The average person in perfect conditions can lip-read about 14%.
Note: ASL is a multi-sensory form of communication that helps children acquire vocabulary more quickly and efficiently.
