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.

    • Hi everyone! I just started learning ASL a few days ago and hope to further my learning by practicing through video chat on here! I am an extreme beginner so I'm in search of other beginners or experienced signers that are willing to be patient.  If anyone is interested, I would love to schedule a time! Can't wait to learn more!!
    • Hi Michelle, I have been learning ASL for 3 months or so but have yet to sign with anybody. I would love to chat with you if you are still looking for friends?
    • Hi. My name is Camille. I have been learning ASL for the past 7 months because my infant is HOH and I would like to be able to support his communication. I'm pretty new to signing but I am eager to learn. 
    • I have 2 semesters of ASL but I need brushing up. I would love to be an interpreter someday. Looking to practice with someone (deaf, HOH, or hearing) who is PATIENT please.
