Allright, I got one for you guys.

Recommended Posts

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.
