Today is Independence Day, the day we celebrate our nation’s freedom. Now the American Signing Community has another reason to celebrate: American Sign Language is now free from the shackles of English!

How to Write American Sign Language is part of a new beginning, one where we can finally record our native thoughts for posterity.

It is built for a tactile experience.

Each chapter in this book has clear photographs and illustrations, along with ample practice space. It is a fantastic self-contained course for study at home, or for use in the classroom.
