ASL & LITERACY
Families are still not given resources or support about including signing with their ddbddldhh children. Families often feel alone in their signing journey. For most, their baby is the first deaf person they meet. They often are nervous and scared to connect with the deaf community. Our diverse communities often desire to connect with hearing families, but lack knowledge of where families are & how to reach out.
DawnSignPress creates, develops, and publishes quality American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture-related videos 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 Deaf Professional Arts Network (d-pan.org) was originally formed to make music and music culture - the predominant shared language and experience of people worldwide – universally accessible by extending its reach to the Deaf and hard of hearing. Since 2006, D-PAN has pioneered the art form of creating high-quality American Sign Language (ASL) music videos, translating the lyrics of popular songs through ASL.
