A sampling of DawnSign’s titles that will be airing on Silent Network include a recent feature segment on Discovery Channel’s Innovations which gives a brief history of Deaf education and materials in the United States lauding DawnSign for their contributions; trailers for the DawnSignPress Award-Winning children’s series, Once Upon a Sign – fairy tales told in a modern way; and a featurette of DawnSign’s visit to Oak Park High School’s ASL class for an interactive discussion on The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
