Hiya!

My name is Madeleine, but you can call me Em. I use they/them pronouns! I'm a PhD student studying engineering education, and I'm neurodivergent (ADHD/ASD). I'm hearing, and I'm interested in learning ASL for a lot of different reasons.

First, my research is very focused on inclusion and diversity. I believe that a big part of inclusion is for people to be able to have access to what they need. Language is a big part of that, and ASL is a language that is not widely used when it ought to be. I also want to learn it because it is very kinesthetic, which is a big part of how I learn. I like to actively do learning rather than passively absorbing rote information. Also, I am autistic, which means that overwhelming situations can make it difficult for me to communicate sometimes. ASL provides another avenue of communication for me if and when I become too overstimulated to verbally communicate my needs. 

I'm here to engage with the ASL teaching/learning community as a way to practice my ASL skills, get better at conversational language, and to educate myself on other types of disability activism that can overlap with the ASL community. Feel free to reach out if you want an accountability/study partner!

Cheers,

Em

    • Hi I am taking ASL through our local community college on zoom. The teacher suggested we practice receptive ASL. Seems most in our class can sign but can't read it. I am playing the game and see there are amazing scores. They must have it on max speed and no mistakes? He told us to try to figure out the word instead of individual letters. I'm finding that really hard. What is your average score? When I increase the speed I freeze. I seem to get stuck on f and x.  Grateful for this website t
    • Hi Ryan, I also started to learn ASL to expland my knowlege and be able to communicate with more people. I'm a 21 year old female college student currently enrolled in a two year ASL training program, I have yet to be certified and am coming to the end of my semester soon, we should video chat, you could show me some of your BSL.  -Best, Jela
    • Hello Ryan, my name is Carleigh, and I am currently in my second ASL class at a community college. I would love to learn about some of BSL and how learning that has been for you. I am an 18-year-old female in my final semester in high school. I started taking sign this year and am hoping to either minor in it or major in it in college.  
    • Hiya everyone! I've decided to learn ASL in order to expand the access I have to the worldwide Deaf/hard-of-hearing community. I'm a 21-year-old male living in the UK and have studied BSL for the last three years while also using it in the care sector supporting deaf/blind clients. I am very aware of how the two deaf cultures differ across the Atlantic and want to form first-hand connections with anyone fluent in/learning ASL to broaden my knowledge on any topic relating the signing community in
