Aimed at those who work in medical settings and all those involved in the health and welfare of deaf people and children, this ground breaking book describes problems and solutions in a well balanced way.
Designed to change attitudes and encourage further study, it is packed with basic communication advice that is immediately accessible.
Clearly explained and illustrated, the book contains core vocabulary for everyday words/signs as well as more specialised words, with all explanatory captions.
A defining feature is the innovatory new DIY section which explains how classifying handshapes can be used to describe medical procedures/equipment.
The introduction offers a wealth of background information that assumes no prior knowledge of the subject, along with a 1000 word index, the two handed Finger Spelling Alphabet and Useful Addresses.
