ASL and Laws: Do They Go Together?

American Sign Language (ASL) is gaining popularity as a foreign language in U.S. colleges and high schools. But, instructional and learning strategies used to teach orthographic languages to individuals with dyslexia may not be effective for learning a visual language. To improve automaticity in recall of ASL vocabulary for students with dyslexia, Skinner’s 1997 intervention, Cover, Copy, and Compare was adapted to a multimedia format, providing additional needed practice for students with dyslexia to acquire ASL; the nature and results of this adaptation are the focus of this presentation.
