This article describes a project in which Vietnamese Deaf children learn through sign language. Deaf adults help families learn sign language while their Deaf children are very young. Families sign with their Deaf child for years before they begin school. Sign language is taught to hearing teachers. Hearing teachers also work with Deaf mentors and sign language interpreters.
The video that comes with the article has English subtitles. In some scenes, Deaf children use Vietnamese sign language. We could not assess whether the video has audio description. The web page is partly accessible for people using screen reading software. However, only some images use alternative text to describe them for people who cannot see them while others do not.
