ASL Version of SRP 15 Principles for Reading to Deaf Children Now Available Online
The Clerc Center is pleased to announce that a new American Sign Language (ASL) version of the 15 Principles for Reading to Deaf Children is now online. The 15 Principles are a great starting place for parents and teachers who want to know how to engage young children in book sharing. The new ASL version brings to life each of the principles accompanied by a voiceover in English. A Spanish language voiceover option will be available soon.
The Shared Reading Project (SRP) is designed to teach parents and caregivers how to read to their deaf and hard of hearing children using ASL, and to use strategies to make book sharing most effective.
For a closer look at these strategies, parents and teachers can learn from the Reading to Deaf Children: Learning from Deaf Adults DVD and manual, which gives samples of each of the principles in action. Training workshops on this topic, as well as other workshops related to literacy and language development,are also available from the Clerc Center upon request.
