Meet Stacey Abrams about #whyIsign

Stacey: How did #whyIsign start? I thought of it to inspire families everywhere to share their personal stories about why they elect to sign with their Deaf children.

Now it is your opportunity to share YOUR story!

There are countless reasons why we care so much about signing ASL.

Graphics: Top reasons why Stacey supports #whyIsign


#1 To sign is human

#2 Researches have proven that learning ASL first can help improve speaking skills

#3 It is important that the baby is exposed to ASL because language acquisition is important to take place during first five years of the child’s life
