Signs of Love has recently started community awareness programs at the schools in the villages that we work in. There are so many misconceptions about deafness and deaf people here in Honduras and we are hoping to change that! Joy has put together a great presentation for teachers, parents, and community members about the causes and preventions of deafness as well as modifications for the classroom if there is a deaf student. In the process, we are finding teachers that are interested in learning more about how to teach the deaf and partner with Signs of Love with the deaf in their own village. (More about that in a later post!)
Daniel has been reading “Enrique Speaks with His Hands” to the hearing children and teaching them a few signs! The picture book is about one of the deaf children that has grown up in Signs of Love and the impact it has made in his life!
Way to go guys!
