Synopsis

Thirty-seven years ago, Rebecca Willman Gernon vowed to show the world the struggles and joys of raising and educating a deaf child. "Amy Signs" is the fulfillment of that promise. Rebecca Willman Gernon's firsthand account is dramatically paired with her daughter Amy's parallel narrative from her own perspective. "Amy Signs" is an uplifting story of realized potential, but it also rings a bell of caution: Amy benefited from residential schools for the deaf, but in today's economy, many are closing, leaving only those schools meant for non-deaf children as the place to turn for many families.
