Congratulations to India’s sign language teachers on establishing their first-ever association, the Indian Sign Language Teachers’ Association (ISLTA), last month in Indore. Launched on 7th May with 40 members from all over India, the ISLTA has set up an ad hoc board and will support networking and skills development among teachers as well as the promotion of ISL as a taught language in the country.
