included the reading book for the preparation class... The students
learned to write and read without learning the basic. We just learn
them ( the word and its sign just read and write it as it was )
Although we were frightened from fail the students respond was

Hello Mohamed! This is so interesting. Although your teachers were a
little worried that maybe the deaf students would
fail...instead...the deaf students responded wonderfully, practiced
reading and writing, and did well...

That is great news!

I know Cecilia Flood in Albuquerque, New Mexico, also told me the
same thing. The teachers were a little nervous, but the students
started teaching the teachers, and learned very quickly!  And then
the teachers could relax and enjoy the experience...
