About Mill Neck International Deaf Center
Mill Neck International Deaf Center (MNIDC) is an online resource center for you to find information and resources to use with your Deaf communities to reduce poverty and to achieve your human rights. We will share with you what we have learned from other organizations, research and Deaf people living in countries throughout the world. Please join us by sharing your ideas, experiences, knowledge and skills!
About our website
Our goal for the online Resource Center is to ensure this website is deaf-friendly. For clear communication access the website is bilingual in International Sign and English supported visually by including clear graphics and icons to illustrate the topics and/or the concepts.
We want to make sure this website is accessible. For deaf people that means ensuring language access through the use of sign language. Just like spoken language, each country has their own sign language. Since there is no one universal sign language, we use “International Sign”. International Sign Language is a sign language with the most understandable signs chosen from diverse sign language thought to make it possible for users of different sign languages to understand each other.
We use English for the written language. English is considered a global language with more than 350 million people around the world reading and writing English as their first language and more than 430 million reading and writing English as their second or more language.
Soon we will have other languages (signed and written), too. We do hope that people around the world will consider translating the material to their language so the website will be accessible to those who are not familiar with International Sign and/or English.
