Hello --

I thought some of you on the SignWriting list might want to reply to Amy
directly. Her email is johansa at cc.wwu.edu.

Amy, I hope you don't mind that I'm forwarding this to the list!

Subject: [slling-l] Deaf education

I am currently studying ASL and Linguistics and I am interested in going
into Deaf education.  I have learned some about signwriting, and am
curious as to how much it is currently being incorporated in the schools.
Does it look to have a successful future and become increasingly popular?
Does it express the writer's intent clearly to the reader?  From what I
understand, this form of writing has begun to be used in the classrooms of
young Deaf children to assist them in learning English.  Has this been
successful, or is it too early to know?

Thanks for your time,
Amy Johansen
