Amy Signs: A Mother, Her Deaf Daughter, and Their Stories provides an account unique in the literature of the deaf community: an account of a hearing mother and a deaf daughter who provide their different perspectives on Amy�s childhood and education. Rebecca was anguished to learn of her 11-month-old baby�s deafness in 1969: her account charts struggles to find the right educational opportunities for Amy. Amy�s story reveals her life at a boarding school, her world of deaf friends living away from home, an her introduction to the world of sign. A fine account evolves with two different perspectives revealed.

Rebecca Willman Gernon writes plays, short stories, and memoirs in New Orleans, LA.

Amy Willman is a Lecturer in the Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders, University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
