Hello, I'm Travis

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

So, my name is Travis.  I'm learning ASL through the startasl website for the time being and will be taking ASL classes this fall and next spring.  I'm learning ASL to help with my patients.  I work for a hospital and have had three interactions recent with deaf or hoh patients that I have had to use a tablet on wheels with a video interpreter.  That was a great experience and tool, but it was only valuable while I had the interpreter on the line.  Once I got my patient into the room to work with them, I was no longer able to communicate my instructions due to my lack of knowledge of ASL.  So I made it a point to try and learn.

    • That sounds like a great plan! I'll be there when I can :)
    • Hello, I am Amy.
    • I like your idea! I'll try to be there.
    • I've noticed there's an increasing amount of people attempting to use the chat rooms on the website to practice. I'm here to possibly discuss a solution. If people read this, we could arrange to have people congregate to the chatroom at around 9 pm EST two days a week. At this time most people would be off work and have a little bit of free time. My suggestion is everyone tries to hop on around 9 pm EST either every Friday (as per the calendar) or every Wednesday and Saturday, where people get two opportunities per week to meet others. What do you guys think? I try to check the chat every other day at around 8 pm EST.   My ultimate suggestion is 9 pm EST on Friday. What do you guys think?
