Hi Valerie and list.
We still use signwriting during our sign language sessions, during the
winter. Although we are not a school as we are volunteering for whoever is
interested, but we have a weekly get together and really enjoying the
sessions. We even have some nurses and doctors participating as there are
some hard of hearing and deaf patients in the old age homes and hospitals..
Although we sign and write in English as most here came from the Bellville
school in Ontario.
Have a great day all of you.
