The world's one-of-a-kind animated dictionary will empower children to look up words in American Sign Language.
American Sign Language (ASL) is the fourth most used language in the United States. Because of limited availability of ASL resources worldwide, not everyone has the opportunity to learn or observe others use ASL, especially when ASL is a visually 3-D language. That's where the Animated Signing Dictionary for Kids comes in! It is a landmark interactive tool that allows kids and even adults to look up words in ASL. Looking up words in ASL involves the use of handshapes, locations and movements of signs. You can also look up words in English and find the signing counterpart. The rabbit signs the words and the magician defines and uses them in sentences. The Animated Signing Dictionary for Kids will have a phenomenal impact on literacy of Deaf children and can be used by hearing children and their families as well. There is also an adult guide and activities for parents teachers and kids. It is unquestionably, one of the most powerful tools ever developed to support Deaf children. This animated signing dictionary is a huge breakthrough!! Finally Deaf kids and their families can look up the definitions for words they don't recognize or understand!!
