Subject: RE: Question about Software for Games for Deaf Children

I do not know of software games geared specifically for Deaf and hard
of hearing children, however, Don Jonston makes some software that can
work well depending on the population.  Rosie's Walk is the name of
one.  It is literacy software that signs the story Rosie's Walk the
kids can click on different characters and what-not.  On that CD, there
are a few other stories.  Don Jonston makes 2-3 different CDs like
this. By the same company is a "predicatble" writing program to
facilitate the writing process particularly for students who experience
difficulty in spelling. It is called Co-Writer. It works a little bit
like the cloze procedure and gives the student a menu of words that
would make sense based on what they already wrote. The students pick
the word or spelling that looks correct.

Hope this helps a little bit.

....has software evolved into bringing games to deaf children? Are
there recreation cds available for hearing impaired children? Can you
help me on this please?


Hello Manjula!
Thank you for this question. I do not know software specifically for
playing games with Deaf children. That is why I am posting this
question to our SignWriting List...

Does anyone know of software designed to play games with Deaf children?

Val ;-)
