00:05 You will see that we've included two videos of the alphabet,

00:09 examples of both left and right handed signing.

00:13 When determining which hand you should use consider which is your dominant hand.

00:18 If you write with your right hand then you will sign right handed,

00:23 and the same goes if you are left handed.

00:26 It is important to not switch between hands.

00:29 Right handed signers move mostly the right hand,

00:33 left handed signers move the left.

00:37 Mixing between these can impact the clarity of the language

00:42 so try to stick with your hand.
