Learn ASL with PopSign

Teaching an infant sign language accelerates their language skills, whether they are hearing or deaf.

PopSign is an educational bubble shooter game developed by the Georgia Institute of Technology and RIT/NTID’s Center on Access Technology. The game teaches over 500 American Sign Language (ASL) signs based on the MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventories, which are the first concepts used to teach a language to a child. 95% of deaf infants are born to hearing parents, who often do not know ASL.

PopSign is in beta testing! If you'd like to try it out, we'd love to hear your comments.
