DawnSignPress ASL Fingerspelled Word Recognition through Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP)


The authors have spent years researching and creating a one-of-a-kind program. RSVP leads you through the theory behind fingerspelling, provides you with abundant practice, and rewards you with improved recognition of fingerspelling words.

RSVP can be used in the classroom or for self-study.

TEXTBOOK - explains the form and function of the types of fingerspelling:
  • Careful
  • Rapid
  • Lexicalized
CD ROM - provides the method (tools) to "train your brain" for processing serial information

DVD - using ASL monologues, allows you to take everything you have learned and put it together for successful fingerspelled word recognition!

Learning and practicing this extensively researched approach is the key to unlocking the mystery of understanding fingerspelling.
