Manual Communication: Implications for Education offers the first authoritative examination of sign systems used in the education of deaf students. Professionals, teachers, and parents will appreciate the individual, expert explanations of:

  • American Sign Language
  • Pidgin Sign (Contact Sign)
  • Signed English
  • Signing Exact English
  • Cued Speech
The descriptions by the acknowledged designer, administrator, or scholar of each system ensures the highest accuracy and thoroughness, distinguishing Manual Communication as a significant, important resource.

The first chapter recounts the history of sign language, particularly American Sign Language (ASL), including foreign influences and conflicts about its use. An overview follows, describing factors that affect manual communication, such as learner characteristics. Also, an analysis of a nationwide survey of teachers shows the results of their use of the various forms of manual communication in different settings.

Harry Bornstein is former director of the Gallaudet Signed English Project and is now a consultant in San Francisco, CA.
