SIL recognizes Deaf History Month

(13 March–15 April 2009) Deaf History Month is celebrated annually in the USA from 13 March to 15 April. SIL has several ongoing projects to serve Deaf communities, including surveys to distinguish between various signed languages. During Deaf History Month and the weeks leading up to it, SIL held a workshop in Colorado, a consultation in the United Kingdom and a consultant training session in Kenya. The work of SIL with Deaf populations is an extension of its long-standing advocacy for all ethnolinguistic communities throughout the world.
