Ever heard of Rachel Coleman?
She’s the very animated lady you see in all the Signing Time videos.
She is the mother of a daughter who is deaf and another daughter who has special physical needs.
And her story is incredible.
Her courage, her tenacity, her faith in her child.
She’s an inspiration to all mothers, fathers, families, teachers who work tirelessly to create language-rich environments for children who are deaf and hard of hearing.
I spent an hour watching her presentation, “One Deaf Child,” and I couldn’t have chosen a better way to spend my afternoon.
Check it out! You’ll be glad you did.
Our little caterpillars do become butterflies and what I’ve found is that sign language often gives them their wings.
