New VL2 Translational Products on the Advantages of ASL-English Bilingualism
We are delighted to announce the release of the VL2 Parent Information Package, which shares tips and findings from VL2 research on the advantages of early visual language and ASL-English bilingualism for parents, educators, students, medical professionals, and others who work with deaf and hard of hearing children. It is available as a mailer and as a website. Share www.vl2parentspackage.org and the files under the Parent Package tab at the top of the site with colleagues, parents, practitioners, and others who work with deaf and hard of hearing children.
We've just released two new research briefs, the first written by Charlotte Enns and Liana Price, about the importance of family involvement in ASL acquisition. The second is on the role of gesture in development and learning, written by So-One Hwang, Melissa Herzig, and Carol Padden. Both can be found at vl2.gallaudet.edu.
But that's not all we've been up to in May and June. See the link below for more news about VL2 events and activities and accomplishments in the last two months: issuu.com/vl2newsletter/docs/may___june_2013_vl2_newsletter_pdf
