"Kai" signing "cookie"!

She has a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Seneca College and continues to learn American Sign Language (ASL) with the Canadian Hearing Society. In 2009, Mabel completed ASL 103 at with the Canadian Hearing Society in Toronto.

Mabel is familiar with the benefits of using American Sign Language because of her experience as an Early Childhood Educator and an Educational Assistant for those with special needs.
