has increased ten-fold. While they may know more signs or perhaps just this sign, their communicative behavior with me is greatly appreciated and is reflective of a changing society. I understand that many signers are hearing and non-disabled, yet they serve an important role to deaf people.

I believe strongly that SASL and its specialization in research and scholarship will ultimately help contribute important information to various organizations, including those with a strong interest in international affairs such as the World Federation of the Deaf.
