Thank you the Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer Services (ORKTS), CUHK’s “Sustainable Knowledge Transfer Project Fund” for supporting SLCO-CR and other NGOs to be founded, and enabling the research result of scholars and professors to benefit the general public in society.
Thank you for the Catholic Hong Kong Diocese Weekly Newspaper to interview our founder, Prof. Gladys Tang, and introduce Deaf community and sign bilingualism to the readers.
Morgan Stanley will provide financial support to the project of SLCO - “Effective Signed Intervention (ESI) for Children with Special Education Needs (SEN)”, targeting the SEN children, including autism and intellectual disability, by hosting classes and storytelling sessions conducted in sign and spoken language, as well as providing parent training to promote the importance of sign bilingualism. The organization expects 1600 SEN children can be benefitted from the project.
We joined the Multi-talent Bazaar this year to provide Sign Language workshops for participants to interact with the Deaf person directly and introduce Learn with Sign and Speech (LS2) - Sign Bilingual Vocabulary Learning Package.
Thank you the author for using SLCO-CR as an example. We hope that sign bilingualism can be applied on more different aspects in society so as to create a more barrier-free and inclusive society.
