Meaning: SimCom or sign supported speech (SSS) is a method used by deaf, hard-of-hearing or hearing persons in which both a spoken language and Manually Coded English are used simultaneously.

This method is unsuitable for language acquisition. The brain has a bioprogram device that languages (both signed and spoken) have their own phonological/phonetic rules and constraints, even though both ASL and English function in the same linguistic regions of the brain. Signing English is an analogue to speaking English grammar using Japanese words.
