Hello everyone!
One of my students is preparing her Graduation Project, and she chose to write about teaching signwriting to deaf children in Tunisia.
She will be teaching children who are 6,7 and 8 years old, that will be for 4 months, after that we will check the results and how signwriting does help children:
1/ Memorize Sign Language, 
2/ Learn Arabic and French (our official languages), and also English later on.
3/ Embetter sound recognition.
4/ Make them express themselves using their mother tongue.
This is very important to my student, she was very courageous to work on such a project, but I have no idea how we can work that out, neither the materials we can use in this deaf school for teaching.
Does anyone have an idea how to start, and what kind of materials I can make....
If this small project is well made and if it could bear fruits, many other deaf schools will be happy to ask us to teach SW in all over the country!
Please I need every single advice from you!!!
