The June 2008 Conflict! GU Birthday.

G'day Everyone!

I just got out of my e-mail and just got word about the next DBC rally. Here it is:
Come to Milwaukee
June 27 - 30, 2008
Deaf Bilingual Coalition
Education Conference
Hyatt Regency
333 West Kilbourn Avenue
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
For hotel reservations call: 1-800-233-1234,
and Ask for "Education Conference Rates"
DBC Rally in Milwaukee Awareness on Baby Signing
Presentations by Experts in ASL Coalition Building Training
The Greatest Irony is that AGBell/AVT and its associates do not want Deaf babies to learn any sign language at all!
Join DBC to tell the world that if research proved that hearing babies
1. Reduces frustration and other aggressive behaviors.
2. Helps parents and teachers be more observant and responsive.
3. Builds trust between babies and their parents and caregivers.
4. Allows babies to share their worlds revealing just how smart babies really are.
5. Promotes positive emotional development.
6. Boosts babies' self-confidence and builds self-esteem._
Then why not for Deaf Babies?
See www.Deafbilingual.blogspot.com and www.deafbilingualcoalition.com for more conference information.
So, those dates are almost in conflict with the NTID 40th Reunion Anniversary (June 26-28). But, everyone is going to have to make their choices this summer. DBC will always be around, but the NTID reunion happens only once every 5 years while mini-NTID reunions happen with the RIT homecoming weekends.
FLASH: April 3rd, 2008 Gallaudet University will become 144 years old. WOW! Just 6 more years to go to the 150th party. Can't wait!
So, have a great SEMPER FI day!
