    captioning vs signing

    I second what Jillio said. They really serve two purposes and in an ideal world we would have both. Also, consider your audience. One of my pet peeves is all the captioning on the children's shows. Even the hearing kids can't read well enough and fast enough to catch it all. We need to...

    ASL in children with residual hearing

    It sounds like you have done your homework, and that is the important part of making the right decision. I would totally support you in your use of ASL. I will add that although my daughter uses SEE exclusively at home and in school, she is totally comfortable in the deaf community and code...

    ASL in children with residual hearing

    That's fine if you disagree.... you might note my post said i suggest they 'look into it' and it 'might work' for them. I personally think parents of deaf/hoh children should look extensively into all systems to make an educated choice for their family. However, I would be interested...

    ASL in children with residual hearing

    ok, I do NOT want to cause argument... from my experience and in my opinion, I would consider looking into SEE. I do not think SEE is for everyone, but for your kids, it might be a good fit since they do have some hearing and language exposure. The signs will match what they do hear and see...

    Is there a free online SEE dictionary?

    Actually if you are just using ASL signs in english order that is not SEE. Just trying to clarify not cause an argument. :) that would be more like transliterating or even PSE/contact sign or Conceptually Accurate Signed English (CASE). SEE has very specific signs, and although many are the...

    Unfortunately there is not a good SEE dictionary online at this time. However, we are working on one! I would really encourage you to get some SEE dictionaries. I can tell you from experience, yes, it is easier for family members to learn to sign english. My whole family signs and they would...
