The ASL Episode

We recently told you about the coming episode of Switched At Birth entirely in American Sign Language. You can see it Monday, March 4. The episode was inspired by events at Gallaudet University a quarter of a century ago, knowing at the Deaf President Now protests. In the episode, the students at Carlton School for the Deaf protest to keep their school open. Daphne, played by Katie Leclerc, leads the student protest and arranges a demonstration to take place the night before their production of "Romeo and Juliet," in which she stars. Meanwhile, Bay, played by Vanessa Marano, is one of the few hearing students in the school who tries to join the cause. Here's video interview with Katie Leclerc (no captions).
