The authors reported that the majority of students who are deaf/hard of hearing (D/HH) receive educational services in their local schools where educators frequently lack proficient sign language skills. One way to provide fluent sign language models is through the use of repeated viewings of stories presented in sign language. The authors present an overview of the current evidence base for the use of repeated viewings of sign language materials with students who are D/HH. The authors also detail how sign language materials are created by a collaborative team at a school for the deaf.
