Join LaRonda as she and her family get a tour of Dawn Sign Press from Jon Savage in San Diego. According to an interview statement by CEO/President, Joe Dannis, “D. S. P. stands for Dawn Sign Press, and that is a publishing company specializing in textbooks, books, and educational materials for Deaf and hearing children and adults who are learning American Sign Language, Deaf culture, and Deaf history. The word dawn isn’t from an individual’s name but it represents the dawning of a new era, one in which we recognize American Sign Language and Deaf culture.”
This 9 minute video clip is especially good for kids (and grown ups) to see as it offers a little career exploration. My 10 year old son learned a lot about different jobs there. We ended up having a great conversation with him later about possible careers as a result. Jon was once again a great guide and the people at DSP were warm and welcoming! Summary below.
