As part of a proposal to turn the sign language to an official language in Ecuador, the Vice President’s Office released the first dictionary for the deaf; a text which compiles the different connotations, emotions and idioms contained in this language. From this text a basic summary will be issued for the training of public employees, who within a short period of time will have to provide a personalized customer service.
Lenin Moreno expressed that unfortunately, over time, people with hearing disabilities have suffered the disdain of the education system, and even have been prohibited from using their hands to communicate. That is why, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education of Ecuador, the dictionary has been added to the print list of guides for parents, teachers and interpreters of the language.
