To our customers who either know, use, are learning, or wants to know more about American Sign Language (ASL), I am excited to share that Switched at Birth, which appears on ABC Family cable on Mondays, will air an all-ASL episode this coming Monday!
This approach definitely ranks among one of the first in TV land! Switched at Birth, which launched in June 2011, is a drama revolving around two teenagers who were switched at birth. One is Deaf and was raised by single mother, and the other is Hearing and lives in a wealthy family.
Both teenagers were brought up in different environments and then when the switch was discovered, both families meet and struggle to live together.

Switched at Birth is one of the few TV shows that my whole family can watch together regularly. It is really cool that we have this show as ASL is the primary language in our household, even with two children who are hearing. Each one of us can relate to Switched at Birth. And we know our friends also watch the program religiously!

I would like to send a shout-out to my dear friend, Dyan Sue Kovacs who will make her first appearance on Monday's episode. You probably have already seen Dyan Sue's photography work as she took photos of our menu items! This is my favorite photos of Dyan's work.
We encourage you to watch this special ASL episode of Switched at Birth on Monday. More details on this show can be seen at http://beta.abcfamily.go.com/shows/switched-at-birth.
