FEDERAL: The sign "FEDERAL is almost the same as the sign as GOVERNMENT, except
for FEDERAL you
use an "F" handshape.
CLOSE: The sign for "CLOSE" is almost the same as the sign for "CLOSE-DOOR"
except that both hands do a shutting motion.
ALLERGIC: For the sign "ALLERGIC," start with the dominant
hand index finger near the tip of your nose (pointing at the nose) then do
the sign for OPPOSITE.
COST: The sign "COST-(worth/value" is a variation of the sign
IMPORTANT. "COST-(worth/value") taps two "F" hands together twice at the
tips of the thumbs and index fingers. (Which happens to be the ending
position of the sign "important.") This can be used to ask:
"What is that worth?" or "What is the cost of?"
Age of graduation: Certain students with
disabilities (including Deaf students) have a legal right to remain in the
public school system until the age of 21. Thus it is common for a Deaf
student to graduate at age 21.
Signaling Devices: Lights, vibrators, or other devices that alert or
inform a Deaf person of events, situations, or changes in the environment.
For example: "A door light." When someone presses on a button next to
the door outside, a light flashes inside to let the Deaf individual know
that someone is at the door. Another example: When it is time to wake
up, a vibrator under the mattress can be used as type of "alarm clock."
Cochlear Implants: Devices implanted
into the ear to provide an electronic semblance of "hearing."
