Is SignWriting easy to learn?

Yes – teachers report that young Deaf children learn to read SignWriting easily. They are able to learn the basics of SignWriting very quickly, but need time and practice to master the complete writing system.

Writing is more difficult to learn, since it requires not only mastery of the writing system, but also the ability to put thoughts onto paper.
