Teachers & Speech Therapist who use American Sign Language ... .
I just wanted to let you know there is a program on PBS called Signing Time. For folks getting Houston PBS, it comes on Sunday mornings. It is half an hour of playful instruction and singing, beautiful children signing, etc. You can practice your rudimentary skills with this show. They also have a website http://www.SigningTimeKids.org .

My autistic son first learned to communicate using basic signs.

in Irving ISD that houses the regional day school for the deaf. We have kids receiving total communication with signs and speech from before the pre-k years all the way to graduation from high school.

2. Excellent! I hope your local PBS carries this show.
Parents of toddlers and some special needs children might find it helpful. I learn a few dozen signs in about 30 minutes watching one show. Maybe you can pass this info around if your area carries the show.
