With the Inclood publishing house, Marina Guittois is launching a collection of children's books aimed at raising awareness of sign language.
Marina Guittois wants to remove the barriers between the hearing world and the deaf world and educate a large public about French sign language.Consultant trainer specializing in tourist accessibility, La Mayennaise has written four books for children aged 4 and over, titled Arthur and Zazou.
"Arthur is deaf from birth unlike his twin Zazou.They communicate together by signing", says Marina who had the original idea in 2013 but had not yet found a publishing house ready to follow it.“I didn't want to go through a specialized publishing house."
His collection combines different features to speak to the greatest number.
"The book is accessible to all children, whether they are hearing, deaf, readers or in the process of learning to read.It is written in Falc (Easy to Read and Understand) so that even people with intellectual disabilities or audiences with dyslexia (dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysphasia, etc.) have access to it.I was trained at Falc in 2010.Then, each volume tells a story and deals with a theme with a lexicon.In each one, fourteen different signs are It allows you to learn sign language without it being too heavy."
