Hi everyone,

My name is Catalina De la Rocha. I'm currently studying the last semester
of the Inclusive Design Masters Program at OCAD University in Toronto ON,
Canada.

For my Major Research Project, I'm looking into ways to empower Deaf
children to learn and teach Sign Language at home with their bilingual
families. I'm convinced that the best way to bridge Spoken and Signed
Languages is through visual elements and icons because they play a role of
a universal language.
This study began three years ago in my hometown Aguascalientes, Mexico,
when I became aware of the lack of material and support that the Deaf
community has to learn Mexican Sign Language.
The purpose of the research is to design a game tof bring families and
groups together for a convivial learning experience in Sign Language.

This is an academic research but I would love to make a real product that
could benefit the Mexican Deaf Community and I would like to learn more
about incorporating SignWriting to this interactive game.

I would love to learn more about SignWriting and to share some of my ideas
with you,  specially if anyone has experience with Sign Language Family
Programs and/or teaching methods in developing countries.

Kind regards,

Catalina
