Spell: Learn the Sign Language Alphabet

Wit Dot Media Inc

Spell is an app to learn and exercise reading and spelling in the American Sign Language (ASL).

Learning the alphabet can be helpful for learning sign language. Being able to interpret the letters quickly and signing them yourself makes conversation a lot easier.

How it works

The app picks a word and spells it out. If you understand the word, choose "Next Word"; the app will pick another word and spell it slightly faster. If you missed the word, choose "Show Again"; the app will slow down and repeat the word. This way the app adjusts to your skill level as you learn.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

"I use Signed Stories to start conversations, give language models that I can discuss with my students, and ask questions based on the story." Tutor of deaf children, USA

“Signed Stories is an outstanding addition to any child's library. These highly versatile apps give your child the opportunity to experience a story like no other...your child is given the chance to be exposed to literacy on its highest level.” Dawn Andell, Educational Resource Specialist, USA

“Thank you for bringing such incredible storytellers to my app world.” Teacher, USA

Books in Signed Stories Book Bundle #2 for Schools:
Everyone is unique, everyone is special and working together is a great way to get things done - these simple lessons about the acceptance of others are shared in these stories of everyday life.

A Friend Like Simon
Simon has autism and sometimes acts a little differently to other children in the class. Matthew isn’t sure if he wants a friend like Simon - but a school trip helps Matthew to change his mind! This story encourages children to accept the differences of others and shows the importance of friendships.

Going to Buy Clothes
This book has been specially created to support language development and the learning of day-to-day skills. Throughout this book the emphasis is on the boy taking the lead - he chooses his own t-shirt and pays at the checkout - and it’s ideal for encouraging children to take the initiative and be independent.

The Cloud
This is a beautiful picture book, but there’s also a deeper meaning. We have no idea why the little girl has a black cloud above her. The story can be interpreted in different ways to suit the needs of families and teachers - for example dealing with loss and grief, with loneliness and feeling excluded.

The Elves and the Shoemaker
This book encourages children to think about others. In this story the elves do a good deed without expecting any reward. It also reminds children to say thank you when someone is kind to them.

The Lost Stars
This story gives children a new perspective on the world and a new appreciation of the natural world. It also shows that there are consequences to actions.

Tom’s Special Talent
Tom isn’t sure if he has any talent at all when he sees how good his friends are at reading and writing. But a school competition helps him to find his own very special talent! This book deals sensitively with Tom’s dyslexia and clearly shows the different ways that children can be creative and express themselves.

ASL Baby Sign by Kwebl

ASL Baby Sign by Kwebl

Kwebl BV

Learn to communicate with your baby way before the talking starts, using simple ASL baby signs. With the Kwebl Dictionary app you can quick and easily find signs, so you and your baby can start communicating from the start. From as early as 8 months old!


FEATURES
- A growing number of ASL baby signs right in your pocket.
- Looping videos, so you can easily see how it’s done.
- Slow down the video, to better view the hand shapes.
- Find a sign in 3 simple steps with the easy interface.
- Make a list of favorites, for the signs your learning.

**More ASL signs coming soon.**


ABOUT THE APP
With the Kwebl ASL Baby Sign dictionary app, you can easily learn ASL signs to make early communication possible. This creates a tighter parent-child bond and stimulates early (language) development.


ABOUT US
We are Kwebl (from the Dutch word ‘Kwebbelen’, which means babbling), and we’re here to enable early communication between you and your baby. How? By making use of something we all do from birth. Making hand gestures!
Even the youngest children want to tell you what they need, feel, and see. But they’re unable to express themselves verbally. This often brings along misunderstanding or even tantrums!
By signing ASL, your baby will be able to tell you what’s up. Spontaneously bursting into tears without you knowing why will be a thing of the past. By designing our products specifically for parents and children from 8 months up, we make real communication possible, easy, and fun. We use the official sings of the American Sign Language (ASL).

If we can help you with anything regarding ASL, or you have any questions, please let us know. Send us a message or see www.kwebl.co
