Kathy - here's the information for Vera.

Dear Vera, I have been in contact with Dr. Harry Lang at NTID who has been developing a text book of science and technical signs. Below are his address, phone numbers, and email address for you. Harry wrote an interesting paper on science education of deaf students and the role of technology. If you are interested in that paper, you can ask him or me to forward it to you on email.

Best wishes, jane

In addition, we are collecting, evaluating and sharing engineering, mathematics, and science signs through videotapes and a printed manual in a national "Technical Signs Project" (Caccamise & Lang, 1996). Teachers, interpreters, and other professionals use these tapes and manuals to learn the most common signs for technical concepts, which enhances communication in the classroom.
