A do-it-yourself dictionary could also be ordered by hand shape/movement and get people used to treating ASL or any other sign language as independent, not based on a translation of a single concept in spoken language. Example. 

A, B, C, D, E, Five, Four, One, Three, Two (alphabetic)

Sign Symbol Sequence Order (above English words)

One, D, Two, Three, B, Four, E, Five, C, A

Yes Adam, DIY = Do It Yourself. I thought it was the best way to explain that the students actually write in the vocabulary they learn as they go...maybe not! *lol* Sorry!
