Whether the goal is to communicate with hearing-impaired grandparent, a child with special needs in school, or an infant, people learn sign language for many different reasons. Easy to read and reference—and complete with images and examples of common signs—this basic guide allows you to make a meaningful connection that's otherwise impossible.
