SignWriting List
October 3, 2010

Stefan Woehrmann is an innovative and brilliant teacher of Deaf students at
the Osnabruck School for the Deaf in Osnabruck, Germany, and because of
Stefan, the mouth movements of Mouthing words, and the visual look of
speech, when speaking words, can be written using SignWriting symbols
combined with some adjustments that Stefan created. Stefan standardized a
way to write Mouthing and Speech. When writing Speech, we call it
Woehrmann's SpeechWriting, and I am so happy and proud of these
developments...the more innovation and new developments the better for the
world, and Stefan has had success with teaching his Deaf students language,
using SignWriting and SpeechWriting, and some of his students are actually
speaking better too, with his total dedication to their education - A great
teacher deserves to be recognized.

Happy Birthday, Stefan!

Here is the Happy Birthday Song in ASL.
It says:
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday person Stefan.
Happy Birthday to you.

All with smiles!!
