Teachers Attitudes About SignWriting
SignWriting (SW) is a way to read and write sign language. It started and was first developed by Valerie Sutton in 1974. Teachers and parents began using SW all over the world. In this study we want to learn about their attitudes and perspectives about SW. We are asking you to help us by answering the following questionnaire.
The information we collect will be used for research purposes only.
