Hello, I'm Travis

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.

    • Hey all, I would be down to be a practice partner. Id say im an advanced beginner willing to sign with anyone.
    • Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups.  Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)).  Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline.  It can be tricky with time zone differe
