Scoop: SWITCHED AT BIRTH on ABC FAMILY - Today, March 4, 2013 In an all-new episode of "Switched at Birth" told entirely in American Sign Language (ASL), the students at Carlton School for the Deaf protest to keep their school open. The ground-breaking episode, a first for a scripted series on mainstream television, will air tonight, March 4 at 8:00PM ET/PT on ABC Family.

When news of the school's closing spreads throughout campus, Daphne leads the students of Carlton School for the Deaf in arranging a demonstration to take place on the eve of the "Romeo and Juliet" play, in which Daphne has the lead role. Meanwhile, as one of a handful of hearing students in the school, Bay's attempt to be part of the campaign is challenged.

The storyline was inspired by the real-life "Deaf President Now" protests at Gallaudet University that took place 25 years ago this March.
