    It's actually better to use person first language when referring to the disability community. Instead of 'deaf parents', try 'her parents who are auditorily impaired (or deaf)'. It's better to make the focus the person, NOT the disability.

    That was beyond adorable. She did it with such beautiful enthusiasm and her parents must be soooooo proud. Well done little Miss.

    Re: Lily – Geeze get over it. It's not like Perez was being negative at all. In fact this was a very positive post. Way to point out how someone does something "incorrectly".

    Anyways, this video was super cute! I like how the kid next to her looked so confused. So funny.

    Maybe this little one will grow up to be an interpreter. There is a great series on netflix calling Signing time with Alex and Leah that is really fun and to learn some basic ASL.My daughter is 3 and can sign.I taught her to sign when she was baby.And she still uses apple and more and few others.

    Re: Lily – You are trying to hard. Deaf people would be insulted if you called them "auditorily impaired." They are Deaf and that is how they identify themselves. Try reading a book sometime.

    Re: Leilei99 – It is appropriate and more useful to use a term that most people actually understand.

    Re: Lily – Honestly, the two words that will pop out most to a lot of people will be "Deaf" AND "Parents"….No one will really care that much which order the words are in. It says the same thing. The child's parents are deaf and she signs for them; Deaf parent's child signs for them; Parent's who are deaf are surprised by their child signing for them, etc. See, they all sound the same, the same message gets sent, both of those words are equally important in the introduction to the article. And auditorily (which i don't think is a word) impaired? What's that about? Deaf is a perfectly fine word. Unless saying "deaf" is no longer PC and god forbid might hurt someone's feelings? people are way to precious these days…

    my oh my, what a natural signing to the song, Claire did a marvelous ASL with expressions.
    I agree with Lily about 'Auditorily (Hearing) Impaired" is an insult to Deaf. We, Deaf, are proud to be called Deaf. Deaf with capital D means Culture, Art, Language and Community, the small case d in deaf is a medical term.
    That little girl shows a lot of expression in ASL, there's art in language along with music. She went with flow.
