Introduction and a request for help

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm the father of a wonderfully bright, amazing 8 yo who  is deaf and uses a combination of ASL and spoken language to communicate. While he learns ASL at an amazing rate, my swiss cheese brain can't keep up with him. He will stump me with signs that I don't recognize, but I desperately want to understand. The attached video is the sign that he used today. If anyone can help me learn what the sign means, I would be very grateful.

    • So, greetings to the community here.  I posted once awhile ago about the Alcatraz tour in ASL. I have since definitely figured out why some people want the ASL tour and others just want the printed tour. But I have a new one for you guys, and this is potentially controversial. OK so I have a co-worker who is on the Autism spectrum.  He received a large group of Deaf visitors.  My co-worker enjoys asking people where they are from etc, I imagine he enthusiastically engaged with the visitors. Now here is the interesting part, the Deaf visitors did a O.? a "uh-huh knowing-eye-look" hard to explain, and then they did a beard-stroking movement accompanied with the eyebrow-raised thing.   What were they saying?  What was this beard stroking thing, they were definitely commenting on my co-workers autism.     PS:  Feel free to PM me if you want, I don't think this is too controversial but yeah.

    • Hello. My name is Melissa and recently lost my hearing completely in my right ear and my left is partial. So I am trying to get as much practice in as possible. If anyone would like to chat, practice, whatever..... I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
