The results are from an on-going study which aims to assist in the teaching of Sign Language (SL) to hearing impaired children by means of non-verbal communication and imitation based interaction games between a humanoid robot and the child. In this study, the robot will be able to express a word in the SL among a set of chosen words using hand movements, body and face gestures and having comprehended the word, the child will give relevant feedback to the robot.
