Site of the Day: Signing Savvy

By September 30, 2009

Follow me on:

What It Is: "Signing Savvy is the most complete online sign language video dictionary. Signing Savvy contains several thousand high resolution videos of American Sign Language (ASL) signs, fingerspelled words, and other common signs used within the United States and Canada. Signing Savvy is an ideal resource to use while you learn sign language. It also is an excellent reference for your day-to-day sign language needs."

Who's In Charge: "The founders of Signing Savvy include educators, interactive media designers, and sign language experts. Company members have been involved in the development of the Personal Communicator, which won the Discover Magazine Software of the Year award in 1995, the popular ASL Browser online dictionary, launched in 1997, and the Signing Online web-based sign language courses which came online in 2003."

Why It's Worth Checking Out: Sign language is useful for children with lots of special needs beyond hearing problems. If you'd like to learn some simple signs to pass on to your child, this dictionary makes it easy to find and imitate.

Where to Start: Baby signs.
