I'm live in Michigan ✋


Recommended Posts

Hi there.  I live in Michigan and yes, we do use our hand to show where we live or where another town is.

It's a rather convenient map since it is always with you.  😂

I have an amazing husband of 25 years, 8 children, 2 granddaughters, a silly chiweenie, and a black cat.

My mom and brother are hard of hearing.  My mom has a cochlear.

Decades ago I took an SEE class.  The school system was offering it to families of students that were deaf or hearing impaired.  I say it that way, because that was the school systems mindset on the topic.

Hi Karenb, I see you learned SEE a long time ago... Do you know ASL? If you are new to it, I can help! If you know some basic conversation, then we can practice! Let me know if you'd like to video chat or something. 🙂

I do know some ASL.  I know that some signs from SEE crossover.  And of course "baby sign" is it's own pidgen of both.

I am interested in learning more ASL signs along with the language itself.  

I would be to happy to chat with you.

    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language.

I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
