Sign Language

Students who are deaf-blind may communicate using sign language. Sign language is a symbolic form of communication. The method of sign language may vary from one student to another depending on how much vision the child has. Some students use visual signs and others may need a more tactile approach. This page provides an overview of the use of sign language and some of the practices in place within our community.
