Observation list to monitor Sign Language development

Kentalis has developed observation lists to monitor the Sign Language development of deaf children in their first years of Sign Language acquisition/learning. These lists allow professionals to gain insight and measure progress. 

Our partner eKitabu develops Sign Language videos for existing children’s books through their Studio KSL. These books are digitized and the Sign Language videos are incorporated in the ePub files, making them accessible and available to young learners learning to read. 

In order to have a better idea of the impact of their Sign Language storybooks Kentalis is collaborating with eKitabu to adapt the observation list for use in Kenia, to monitor the sign language development of the children reading their books. 

Duration: march 2019 – march 2020
