Rachel and Leah: Why we are going to Ghana (Video)

On January 13th, Signing Time stars Rachel and Leah Coleman (as well as other members of the Signing Time Foundation Team) will be boarding a plane for Accra, Ghana. They’ll be spending nearly two weeks, in partnership with Signs of Hope International, working among the Deaf children and schools in this West African nation.  Watch this video to find out why – and how you can help support their work!  (Video is captioned)

  2. I just watched your video and wanted to thank you for the work you are doing in Ghana. It breaks my heart (and I broke down) at hearing that some parents never return for their children. Thank goodness for the school and the love and education they receive there.

    On a personal note, I credit you all with my son having words to speak and sign at age 5. He is autistic, and he really didn’t make the connection between the few signs he knew and how they were used to communicate until we bought your videos. It was truly a “Helen Keller” aha moment for him one day when he realized that the sign SHOES mean those things on his feet! From then on, the signs had meaning, and so did the words. We are on our 2nd and 3rd sets of the DVD’s because we loan them out and use them so much that they get worn out!

    Thank you for continuing the updates on what you are doing. Much to our surprise, I believe that our son really comprehends that Leah is Leah all grown up! His new “joke” when I ask him who I am (to get him to say and sign Mom), he says and signs, “LEAH!” then laughs at his own little joke.

    A million thank you’s will never do. Best of luck with your trip! I hope you have the time of a lifetime!
    Cindy
