Children take communication into their hands at sign language camp in Oklahoma City

American Sign Language is the third most-used language in North America behind English and Spanish, giving people the ability to communicate with deaf friends and relatives and reach out to people who may feel excluded from society.

The video, “¿Qué tan bien oye su hijo? Lo que los padres deben saber” (How well can your child hear? What parents need to know), was initiated in response to a request from members of the national EHDI Diversity Committee.
