ISL Story Sign
25th September 2022
The Irish Deaf society supported by Libraries Ireland and European Union of the Deaf (EUD)/Huawei Project have been working together to launch ISL Story Sign part of the International Week of Deaf people. In agreement with publishers, each libraries chose their own book to translate in ISL.
The international Week of Deaf People is celebrated through various activities by Deaf communities all around the world. These include events welcoming everyone and all members of Deaf communities, which include families of Deaf people, professionals and accredited sign language interpreters, peers as well as stakeholders and government, and organisations of Persons with Disabilities.
On this International Day of Sign Languages, we celebrate collective efforts of Irish Deaf community, governments and society in recognising and promoting Irish Sign Language (ISL) – together we recognise sign languages as an essential human right for Deaf people and children.
