Hello Stuart, and Everyone!
Thanks for this report from the National Association of the Deaf 
conference...The NAD is the short name for the American National 
Association of the Deaf...the NAD has branches or offices in every 
state in the US, and then they come together for a conference...I 
attended some of those conferences in the 1980's and really enjoyed 

So you represented the Iowa Association of the Deaf, Stuart? Wow!!

Thanks for telling people about SignWriting. It helps to have some 
written literature to show people, doesn't it?...smile...That is why I 
think if you could give some of the Goldilocks books to teachers, some 
of them might want to try it...

Val ;-)
