Multicom offers over 70 multimedia products for your home, family, and lifestyle.  We at Reinforcement Unlimited, LLC.   have found their American Sign Language Dictionary to be a very significant aid in helping students develop sign language as a form of functional communication and recommend it to anyone trying to teach functional communication skills.   "Dr. Martin L. Sternberg's award-winning tutorial now features over 2600 signs, an online connection for downloading new signs, a Fingerspelling module, learning games, and much more. The American Sign Language Dictionary offers repeatable video examples and animated illustrations, individual progress-tracking, multiple-player learning games, and search capabilities in five languages."

The Alabama Department of Education has recently developed a website and is in the process of expanding its features.

The Georgia Department of Education administers policies of the State Board of Education under the direction of the State Superintendent of Schools. The Department disburses State education funds, provides technical assistance and support services to local school systems, and operates three State schools for hearing and visually impaired students. The Department places emphasis on being a service agency rather than a regulatory agency. The operation and management of local schools is the responsibility of local boards of education and local school superintendents within the framework of law and State Board policy.
