Sign Language Fonts

We started baby sign language when Munchkin was 5 months old. We’ve kept it up, and will be doing more now that Little Sister has come along. Munchkin’s Grandma uses Signing Exact English for work, and there is some crossover. I particularly want to keep it going as a tool for learning spelling words. If she is a kinesthetic learner, knowing the ASL alphabet will be invaluable.
