Family Communication and the Right to Sign.
Nichols, Marylane
Perspectives in Education and Deafness, v12 n1 p18-21 Sep-Oct 1993
A mother of a deaf child recounts her earlier commitment to an oralist position, her gradual realization that she was asking her child to do the impossible, and the child's rapid acquisition of language when allowed and encouraged to use signs. The importance of hearing parents learning sign language is stressed. (DB)
