Glad to know that Albuquerque have backed the ideal of Written ASL

Any reports or papers being done on this? It would give the SW project in NI
more strength and backing.

The Gallaudet bookstore orders around 20 SignWriting dictionaries a
year. And I know some individual Deaf students and a few teachers use
SignWriting a bit, judging by the email I receive. But officially, I do
not know of any use of SignWriting within their curriculum. There are a
lot of schools in the US. SignWriting has been used in the Albuquerque
Public Schools for years...so that is our official pilot project in the

Val ;-)
