Recording: Why Teach Everyone Sign Language from Birth, Mar 8, 2022

Teach everyone, deaf and hearing, sign language from birth. We are all wired to communicate with each other. Hearing loss is a human condition that nearly everyone will experience in their lifetime, not only children who are born deaf, hard of hearing or deafblind. Visual language and learning for all will reduce the lack of language exposure a monolingual society places on all of its children and millions of deaf and hard of hearing people. It will create a new model of belonging for our world.
