  • Summary

It is important for parents and families of deaf children to learn to communicate, in sign language, with their children. One of the biggest reasons a family member of a deaf child should learn sign language is to help build a more meaningful relationship with the child. And, as in any child's home, language exposure during the developmental stages of learning is critical for deaf children. This film follows family members of deaf children in the American Sign Language classroom as they begin to learn to sign.
