You may not be aware but over 90 percent of deaf children are born into hearing families. It is wonderful that you are taking the time to learn signing.
Another great site that is very helpful is www.familysignlanguage.org.uk
I believe this site was designed to help hearing families (who may have never come across the Deaf community)in communicating with their deaf children. It was set up by the NDCS and has wonderful videos, stories, dictionary of phrases and helpful tips on how to use signing with a growing child. Something always to remember is that being deaf is NOT a learning disabilty and good communication is the key to achieving anything and everything. Best of luck to you and your family.
