Hello my name is Karina. I have been learning ASL for a few months. I am looking for an ASL buddy to practice my sign with. I'm looking for a buddy around the age of 12-18. I am neither deaf or hard of hearing, but I'm just interested in learning this language. I have a goal of learning 9 different languages. I am in the process of learning 3 languages: Spanish, Sign Language, and Mandarin(Chinese). If you are interested in having a buddy and learning sign language with me, or helping me practice please respond to this message. I'm not looking for a teacher or a tutor, I already have that, I just want someone to help me be more immersed in this language. I will be checking this site daily and would love to hear from you.

    • Hi there, my son is in 2nd grade and is nonverbal. He uses ASL to communicate yet he can hear enough that the teachers and aides just talk to him. They use a little bit of sign but no one in the school is fluent in ASL. Its frustrating toe as a parent to see such a lack of drive to learn it. I'm actually having a hard time with requesting it in his IEP because it's hard to advocate for him. I think it's an excellent idea to include ASL as a class in all schools. 
    • Hi there, I have a special needs son who is 8 and is mentally about the age of a 4 year old. We've know he has hearing loss since he was about 8 months old and so we started signing with him. In the last couple years his signing has come a long way thanks to signing videos and his need and want to communicate. He can hear at 40% in his left ear and a little better in his right so we definitely still verbalize everything while we are signing. The signing we are doing is more for main ideas b
