New method of teaching English to the deaf
June 27, 2016
To promote literacy among the hearing impaired, a conference in Vadodara in Gujarat was held to replicate the teaching method used during a research by English literacy experts in the United Kingdom to assess the impact of English reading and writing skills on young deaf persons.
The conference discussed a virtual learning platform called SLEND - Sign Language to English by the Deaf, which was used for learning materials as well as checking for how participants who were using it were progressing.
By learning English, the deaf have a higher chance of getting jobs and becoming independent.
