So Gallaudet was on his way to meet the Braidwoods family.
Trip to England
Hopefulley I don't let Mason down
Gallaudet met the Braidwoods family and asked them how they spoke and taught deaf people. The Braidwoods family said it was very top secret and that they could'nt tell him about their methods without pay. So Gallaudet went to Paris.
Meeting the Braidwoods Family
I'm sorry but it is very top secret
Could you explain how you communicate with the kids
This is really Intresting
These signs are starting to get confusing
One day Gallaudet saw a little girl playing by herself her name was Alice Cogswell. She was deaf and couldn't communicate with others. This reminded Gallaudet of when he used to be alone. Mason Cogswell was worried about his daughters education so he told Gallaudet to find a way to teach deaf people.
Letting Everyone Know
Time to tell everyone the big news
First Deaf School
We have accomplished something great.
When Gallaudet was in France he saw people doing French Sign Language. He was amazed so much he wanted to take his method to America to teach Alice and other deaf children as well. In order to achieve this he took Laurent Clerc to America so that he could better understand the language.
Once Gallaudet reached America with Clerc they met up with Mason. They decided that they needed to get the information about the school as soon as possible.
The first school for the deaf was finally created.
