SignWriting In Your Research

If you would like to conduct research exploring the value of writing signed languages, in fields such as deaf education, linguistics, anthropology or psychology, you are welcome to write to me. I can give you leads, materials and technical support.

There is a rich field of Sign Language Literacy waiting to be explored!

I look forward to hearing from you :-)

All good wishes-

Valerie Sutton
