Simplified Signs: A Manual Sign-Communication System for Special Populations, Volume 1.

John D. Bonvillian, Nicole Kissane Lee, Tracy T. Dooley and Filip T. Loncke

Description:

Simplified Signs presents a system of manual sign communication intended for special populations who have had limited success mastering spoken or full sign languages. It is the culmination of over twenty years of research and development by the authors. The Simplified Sign System has been developed and tested for ease of sign comprehension, memorization, and formation by limiting the complexity of the motor skills required to form each sign, and by ensuring that each sign visually resembles the meaning it conveys.
