Everyone should be entitled to have their fair share of entertainment, but for those who are have a hard time hearing, the options are more limited. While they may be able to lip-read movies and such, much of the dialogue happens without actually seeing the actor speak, and so an entire story line can be lost. Dawn Sign Press has solutions to help provide DVDs and books for deaf people.
“DawnSignPress creates, develops, and publishes quality American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture-related DVDs and books. Dedicated to the principle that Deaf people are the natural experts regarding their language and culture, DawnSignPress wholeheartedly supports the efforts of Deaf people to document ASL, Deaf culture, history, heritage, and literature.”
The Magic Mirror is the latest in their “Once Upon a Sign” series.
This series recreates classic children’s stories in American Sign Language so that children who rely on that as their primary method of communication have something to watch in sign language. The Magic Mirror is all about Alice who will perform in the school talent show. How will she do? You can watch it in sign language to find out!
Other movies in this series include Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, with The Stone Soup and Three Little Pigs coming this fall. All of these titles will delight your child, and make entertainment easier.
But there’s more! The Magic Mirror is also a great way to teach sign language to your children! Children learn best in a hands-on way. One of the best ways to learn a new language is to watch media in that language. While this is available in many world languages, it is hard to come by in American Sign Language. But DawnSignPress is the perfect resource for anything sign language!
