This 6-page laminated guide offers the key points of these facets with detailed descriptive direction for "how", while also explaining "why" certain movements or nuance are useful. Photos of signs are included as examples for a well-rounded quick reference for anyone wanting to increase their language skills for themselves, family, friends, or in support of the impaired in the community. Covers finger spelling; the condition; name signs; general rules; agents; verbs; negation & affirmation; sentence structure; indexing; possessive pronouns; classifiers; and non-manual markers.
