Communication is one of the most important aspects of every relationship and even more important when parents are trying to bond with their young children. Communication comes in many forms and is not limited to only the spoken language. The following 13 minute video describes with vivid imagery and parent interviews how American Sign Language has helped parents connect to their children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The video was produced by DJ Kurs in cooperation with California State University – Northridge and the California Department of Education. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
