Universal Sign Language WORKBOOK for those who wish to communicate with the Deaf.
The greatest need of the Deaf is language and reading. Every means possible should be used to help them with this: speech, speechreading, fingerspelling, manual signs, written language, hearing aids, etc. Teaching the Deaf is a difficult task because much of our language is acquired through our hearing.
Deafness places a person in complete silence which affects him or her physically, emotionally, educationally, socially, spiritually and economically.
