Storyboard Text

  • Mason Finch Cogswell's daughter was diagnosed with spotted fever which caused her to not be able to read, speak, or write. So her dad decided he was going to learn how to sign and teach her also.
  • Cogswell got helped by many other amazing teachers and interpraters to help him learn how to sign.
  • Gallaudet helped learn ASL so that it could be taught at the school, he had no luck at the Braidswood Academy and had to move on to the next source.
  • He learned so much in France that he started teaching classes in asylums.
  • The first student in the asylum was Alice Cogswell, the founder's daughter, and helped many more students to communicate.
  • Most students were adapting to signing so they made up variations of all of the signs and semi changing them, then ASL became a language 143 years later by William C. Stoke
