The VL2 Making Visual Sense! Tutorial Series is a collection of easy-to-follow, short online tutorials designed to introduce parents to promising practices for facilitating communication in ASL. The aim of the tutorials is to support parents in providing a visually-engaging and language-rich environment for young deaf children.
Tutorials are signed (ASL) and spoken (English) video presentations that outline practical strategies that parents can use to support signed language acquisition. Tutorial viewing times are generally less than 20 minutes.
