Using ASL Make a trip to the grocery store an educational experience
ASL Reading Tips
The handicap of deafness is not in the ear; it is in the mind.
~ Marlee Matlin
“Reading with good comprehension requires the ability to think beyond the text. True comprehension occurs when the reader can connect the related schema in his brain to the sentence. The Deaf student who does not have full access and practice to incidental English does not know the English hierarchy of classifying, categorizing and group membership of common words. This has an impact on reading that starts at the early stages of literacy development.”
(Kristin Di Perri–The Bedrock Approach)
