Switched at Birth introduced the beauty of sign language not only to its audience but also to a slew of hearing actors who were asked to learn ASL as part of their roles.
The Kennish family learned their daughter had actually been switched in the hospital just after she was born, and when they reunited with her years later, they learned she had fallen deaf as a result of an illness as a toddler. She was fluent in sign language, as was her mother, and as the Kennishes got to know her, they learned to communicate that way, too.
Though Katie Leclerc who plays Daphne was fluent in ASL before getting the role, everyone else has been learning as the show has been unfolding.
