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
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,
