Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First in a new series of RHW American Sign Language books focused on special fields of interest, this dictionary of medical signs, all of them clearly illustrated, carefully described, and — unlike other ASL dictionaries — defined, will be a boon to the Deaf community, their teachers, their colleagues, and their friends and families.

Communication with health professionals is a vital need in everyone's life, but can be a particular challenge for the hearing impaired. This book contains over 800 signs, including signs for illnesses, treatments, and drugs, as well as for human anatomy and psychology. Such signs are clearly needed by the ever-increasing numbers of Americans for whom ASL is either their native language or the language they learn in order to communicate effectively with those who use it.
