Moments of Truth, ebook

Withstanding childhood poverty in a migrant farming family and an illness in 1943 at age 11 that left him profoundly deaf, Robert R. Davila persevered to become one of the first deaf persons in history to earn a doctorate. He did so at a time when interpreting in higher education had not yet become a professional support service. Davila worked unfailingly to achieve positions of stature as vice president of Gallaudet University, the president of three major deaf education organizations, and the seeming culmination of his career as the highest appointed deaf official ever in the U.S.

The Technical Signs Project was established at Rochester Institute of Technology's National Technical Institute of the Deaf to facilitate effective and precise communication in academic and career environments through the establishment of a nationally-based system for collecting, evaluating, selecting, recording and sharing signs used in these environments. The basic tenet of this project is that usage by content experts who are skilled sign language communicators is the determiner for signs selected for recording. An excellent resource material for professionals and students.
