Term Manually Coded English Instruction
Code LR-8000.0500-500.50
Definition Programs that teach individuals with hearing impairments to communicate using one of the visual communication methods expressed through the hands which attempt to represent the English language. Unlike sign languages such as American Sign Language, which have evolved naturally in deaf communities, the different forms of manually coded English were artificially created and generally follow the grammar of English. Also, unlike deaf sign languages, the various forms of MCE can be used with simultaneous communication, speaking English and signing at the same time. Included are Signed English (SE), Seeing Essential English (SEE I), Signing Exact English (SEE II), Conceptually Accurate Signed English (CASE) and Linguistics of Visual English (LOVE).
