Teaching sign language in Vietnam
Asia-Pacific, Misc., December 11 2017
The Vietnam Intergenerational Deaf Education Outreach Project developed professional human resources for preschool education for people who are deaf.
It trained adults with hearing disabilities to become mentors to children, while also training about 200 hearing teachers in the use of sign language, and over 50 communication facilitators and sign-language interpreters.
A video below about the project tells the story of Linh and Tu, a sister and brother who have been deaf since birth but can now communicate with their family in sign language as a result of home visits by a trained teacher.
