Do You Know Sign Language?

There is a little girl in my neighbourhood that I recently started taking care of after school for a couple of days a week. She is completely deaf and hasn't mastered lip reading yet.

She signs fluently with her parents and reads written words really well. It amazes me though how other children can pick up and learn from her some simple gestures or signs and she can generally get her point across to them that they understand and vice versa.

Wanting to be able to communicate with her, I downloaded an app called Hand Talk. It is a cute little 3D avatar (Hugo) that is really helping me to learn a few words or a sentence by either typing it or speaking it and the avatar will translate by signing.

I can then duplicate the sign for something ... I'm still working on one key word .. I haven't got there yet to do a whole sentence or conversation but I can show her the little avatar fella as he signs what I want to say to her.

Do you know anyone that signs or do you know any sign language?
