Do you know how it feels to grow up without accessible language? Do you know how it feels to be left out in your hearing family because they were told not to use sign language with you? Do you know what it's like to not have hearing family members sign with you, because they were told it would hinder your speech? Do you know what it is like to feel social and emotional isolation in your own home and at school?
This is your chance to change the lives of Deaf babies and children and give them what was missing in your life…the gift of language through American Sign Language and English…bilingualism. Together, we can make a difference.
Below is the ASL version of the petition:
