Toddler's name sign will remain the same
You may remember a story out of Grand Island that went viral in August - a toddler who is deaf was faced with changing the way he signs his name.
Well, it turns out three year old Hunter is keeping his name, which he signs by crossing the first two fingers.
His parents say that Hunter's teacher asked him to change his sign language name citing their weapons policy.
However, the Grand Island Public Schools said they were not requiring any student change how their name is signed.
Hunter's parents use SEE or Signing Exact English while the school district follows ASL, American Sign Language.
"We're going to go ahead and keep his name sign the same. We're going to transition, temporarily going to try ASL and make sure that it doesn't create any communication barriers. Still going to enforce SEE at home of course, but we're going to try to work together as far as that's concerned," said Hunter's father Brian Spanjer.
Hunter still attends preschool at the Early Learning Center in Grand Island.
News 5 will have more on the story Saturday on News 5 at 10:00.
