Learn the basics of American Sign Language with this new series, perfect for kids and adults alike. 

Signing Time! is a multi-sensory series that introduces children and their caregivers to American Sign Language (ASL), a "hands on" second language used by millions. Rachel Coleman, her children Leah and Alex, and Hopkins, an animated frog, teach ASL signs for the alphabet, animals, feelings, foods, manners, colors, sports, days of the week, questions and common phrases, family members, as well as everyday objects and activities. Signing Time will air Sundays at 6 a.m. beginning September 7 on WXXI-TV.

Signing Time! is part of Move to Include programming on WXXI-TV, a partnership between WXXI and the Golisano Foundation designed to promote inclusion for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Special programming includes prime-time specials, children's programs, and news stories. Watch the movie and then share your thoughts with us by taking our survey at
