Vera Loves Signing

Vera is very visual-led.

Although she can hear, nothing's stopping us from using the tool of the hearing-impaired to communicate with her.

And we've found that it turns her on.

Here, my uncle signs to her and she's so tickled. She loves looking at our moving hands. I've had similar response when signing nursery rhymes to her.

I've done up this manual as well of simple daily signs - sleep/bathe/sit etc.

Perhaps one day she'll get what we're trying to say.
