American Sign Language (ASL) is the primary means of communication among the 22 million deaf and hard-of-hearing people in this country -- and those who live and work with them. Communicating in Sign revolutionizes the way ASL is taught by offering a beginning vocabulary based on the grammar and syntax of native signers and illustrating the eye contact, facial expressions, and body language that accompany hand and mouth movements. This breakthrough approach to mastering ASL, written for a general audience, is an invaluable resource for anyone eager to learn a language that is rapidly becoming part of our mainstream culture and also for educators, businesses,and organizations working to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Communicating in Sign places ASL within the context of Deaf culture and etiquette, delineating the components that contribute to its depth and richness.

Barbara Cohen has taught American history and global studies to students in middle and high school. Currently, she teaches in a public high school in western New York, experimenting in her classroom with the Internet resources and research skills.Diane P. Chambers is a nationally certified ASL interpreter and college-level instructor, and is president of Flying Hands, a firm dedicated to linking the hearing and Deaf communities. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
