Hello all!

Thanks for taking the time to read my message. It has been a while since I've been active on a forum so this is kinda fun for me :')

As a construction worker I've been exposed to loud noise pretty regularly. Sometimes its noise from machines, people working away, and what not. But it would appear that its been having an effect on my hearing! I've been getting my hearing tested quite frequently (I'd say maybe once a year for the past few years). Although my hearing is still very audible, there is some minor degredation. Also I have a family history of hearing complication. The more I think about it the more it seems like it might be a smart idea to learn to sign. I started learning online recently and found the process to be quite fun. Not only a valuble language, as a social person being able to opens doors to communicate with people that I may have had more difficulty with in the past.

I really enjoy outdoorsie stuff (hiking, kayaking), and socializing, I'm a film nerd :') So what is your favorite movie!

Please to mee you.

Jo.

    • Hi! My name is Camille. I have a college assignment that requires me to interview anyone who wears cochlear implants, who are hard of hearing or is deaf. I'm hoping we can meet up or maybe set up a virtual meet, like facetime or maybe zoom? I know you're probably wondering why should you help such a random person like me? I don't know why but..I can assure you it's for a good cause. It's for educational purposes. Your time will be much appreciated. If you're interested, please email me
    • Hi Andie! I'm a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant. I'm also in school right now taking communications disorders and deaf education. I'm hoping to become an SLP someday. I have an assignment that requires me to meet people who are deaf, hard of hearing or are wearing cochlear implants. Would it be possible for me to interview Josh? I'm also learning ASL, I know some words but I rely heavily on fingerspelling. Please e-mail me if you're available.  My e-mail is [email protected]
    • Hello, I'm Kiara (hearing), currently a student in ASL- English Interpreting program. I'm enrolled in ASL 4. If you are in the EST time zone and looking for a partner, let me know.  
    • Good Afternoon on this very cold, very snowy day in Southwestern Ontario! My name is Lisa & I'm a Day Program Coordinator for Adults with Exceptionalities. I support  a young man named Josh who is aaaaaamzing & I want to help him make meaningful connections with other people who have a hearing impairment. His ASL is quite good, but more than anything, I'd simply like him to socialize! He is very sweet, sensitive & likes to create his own signs sometimes vs  learning the proper ones!
