Yes, and yes! All deaf children should be given access to signing & deaf adults. It is also ok if they learn to speak, do both, or decide if they prefer to speak only. They should be given access, rather have their choices decided for them. It’s important for deaf children to know that they have the right to learn sign, and that it does not make them any less human. That’s the message today! #whyisign #askmewhyisign

Hu - to sign is human. This is for all deaf kids out there surviving with little or no language. Sign language is our element, our birthright, and is essentially what makes us human.
Hu is a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of sign language to the Deaf community, that it’s a human right, and early sign language acquisition is vital for healthy development of our deaf children.
Check out @tosignishuman - we make onesies, kid tees, etc, all screenprinted. This Hu is however, riso printed! Available on both off white paper and silver (metallic) card stock.
