Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New to Random House Webster's successful American Sign Language reference line: the important medical terms a patient or doctor needs to communicate in ASL, clearly described and illustrated.

Whether in a medical emergency or a routine doctor's visit, it is crucial for medical professionals to communicate effectively with deaf patients. Here at last is an affordable and thorough dictionary of medical terms in American Sign Language, which is needed by the deaf and the medical community alike. Over 1,000 important signs for medical terms, including signs for illnesses, treatments, drugs, and anatomy, are defined in English (to avoid dangerous mix-ups), described with step-by-step instructions for making the sign, and fully illustrated with full-torso drawings in this easy-to-use reference book, the first in a series dedicated to special-interest American Sign Language.
