Carol J. Patrie and Robert E. Johnson 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 fingerspelled words.
RSVP can be used in the classroom or for self-study.
TEXTBOOK - explains the form and function for the types of fingerspelling:
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.
