With the recent fuzz about Filipino Sign Language and the debate whether to support House Bill 6079 (Filipino Sign Language Act of 2012) or not, let us first have an open mind, understand what this language is and how it will empower the Filipino Deaf. We hearing people have been dominating deaf education since 1907. It’s high time that we let the Filipino Deaf people decide for themselves on what language to use in teaching them.
Here is a short video explaining what FSL is NOT. Peace! 🙂
Here is a video of an interview made by Davin Searls, Executive Director of Discovering Deaf Worlds (DDW) with MCCID Deaf Coordinator and one of the founders Ervin Reyes during his visit to the old school building in Cubao, Quezon City. The interview was made possible through the guidance of former MCCID trainor and Gallaudet University Graduate Christina Malay. Enjoy! 🙂
