Assunto: SignWriting in French-Belgium is now in school curriculums!

SignWriting List
March 13, 2013

Dear SignWriting List members -

Yesterday I was blessed with a visit, in my home, from Thierry Haesenne, from the Institut Libre Marie Haps, PROFILS, in Brussels, Belgium...

And we are also blessed with a houseguest this week from Ireland - Shane Gilchirst  - we are having a great time! Shane knows Thierry - they are here because of a big Deaf wedding that took place in Los Angeles last week, and now they are visiting friends in Southern California ;-)

Thierry could only stay a few hours yesterday, but he had the chance to tell me a little about how they are using SignWriting in French-Belgium now - they are not only continuing from their original work in the mid-2000s, but are expanding their work using SignWriting in school curriculums, thanks to teachers and researchers such as Thierry, Bruno Sonnemans and others.

So SignWriting is growing in French-Belgium - They are using the DELEGS software from Hamburg, Germany, as well as SignPuddle too!

I hope to write a more detailed report later, about specifics of their work in French-Belgium -

Congratulations and thank you Thierry, Bruno and everyone -

I enjoyed our visit so much, and wish it could have been longer - I think we need a SignWriting Symposium in La Jolla, California!

Val ;-)
