American Sign Language Basics for Hearing Parents
King, J. F., & Kelley-King, J. (1995). American Sign Language Basics for Hearing Parents of Deaf Children. Hillsboro, OR: Butte Publications.
Each chapter of this 148-page text introduces a specific ASL concept (e.g., declarative statements, questions, timeline in ASL, word order) and provides parents with related information, exercises, and activities. Each activity section includes games and activities for use with the child and other family members. The practice section lists the English sentence and a gloss for ASL (written ASL approximation of the English sentence). Two supplemental videotapes are also available.
