Hi Gina, First, congratulations on your new baby! It sounds like you are on your way to being well prepared! I am a retired Braille teacher and have been taking an ASL class for a few weeks. I would be happy to practice with you sometime. I will send you a video after I figure out how to use this system. It may take me a few days. Post a list of the baby vocabulary/signs you have learned so that those of us who wish to contact you will have something to get us started.
I recently retired from teaching braille. Am taking an ASL class and enjoying it. Just need more opportunities to practice. Looking forward to checking out this site and finding ways to practice. So far enjoying the fingerspelling game. I am amazed that it is possible to read 30 words or more in such a short period of time from seeing all the names on the leaderboard! I am at 16! I have a long way to go! Unlike braille, where reading braille is far easier than writing braille, it seems with ASL it is easier to sign or finger spell to someone than it is to interpret what they are signing or fingerspelling to you. It will be refreshing to be on the other side of the teaching/learning relationship!
Recently retired from the field of Education for Blind and Visually Impaired. Want to learn something new for a potential opportunity to volunteer or take a part-time position in a new area of education or rehabilitation. Looking for a place to practice ASL. Started my first class on July 9.
