ASLChoice is an American Sign Language (ASL) publishing center for videobooks. We are a team of people interested in equalizing the playing field among languages, especially ASL. One way to do that is to provide authors a way to release online videobooks in ASL.
Videobook is just like a textbook. Textbooks are usually an academic, comprehensive study of a particular subject. In this case, we are publishing videobooks, in other words, ASL versions of academic, comprehensive study of a particular subject.
ASLChoice has been acquired by ASLized, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that preserves, promotes and protects ASL and continues to work closely with textbook authors.
We are honored and proud to be the first in the world to publish an academic ASL videobook, specifically, the ASL Companion Volume of Research and Evaluation in Education and Psychology (REEP): Integrating Diversity with Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed Methods Textbook.
This ASL videobook includes two forewords, a prologue, fourteen chapters, with a total of seventeen different signers. The publisher, chapter authors, and the co-editors of the very first academic videobook in ASL are Deaf.
