Stacy Eldred searched for years to find good books and resources for her hearing-impaired daughter Alex and her friends. After teaching sign language to toddlers and preschoolers for over 10 years, she decided it was time to create a fun, easy, instructive and interactive way for teachers and parents to teach SEE (Signing Exact English) to hearing and non-hearing children.
