Wow! This is real research. Three study groups. And the group that
combined the Arabic spoken language with Saudi Arabian signs written
in SignWriting got the highest score. And the second highest group
was the group with only SignWriting and Sign
SignWriting made a positive difference no matter how it was - thanks for telling us!

Does anyone else know of a research study like this with SignWriting?
