Kelly Jo and Shane,
That is a fantastic idea. I would love to be able to get together
with other Sign Writers and exchange and learn more.
I do not have a school, but I am sharing my knowledge of signing with
some hearing adults. One is a librarian, one doctor, several nurses.
I did work with children for a while and they were interested in S W.
but not the adults.
I am hearing myself.
If you want to set up a Canadian Association I would be interested..
