A new "Special Feature" is now available on our SignWriting Web Site at:
It is entitled "Literacy In Nicaraguan Sign Language...Assessing "Written-Sign" Recognition Skills at the Escuelita de Bluefields" by Janice Gangel Vasquez.
It is the ENTIRE thesis posted on the web - I designed every web page with great care, reading it time and time again. It is an outstanding work that Janice has done - I am very impressed with her careful research.
It is also very important for testing "sign language literacy". For those interested in the concept of using SignWriting in deaf education, I think you will find the findings of this paper very important and enlightening.
All the best - Valerie :-)
