    • Hi Gina, First, congratulations on your new baby!   It sounds like you are on your way to being well prepared!   I am a retired Braille teacher and have been taking an ASL class for a few weeks.  I would be happy to practice with you sometime.  I will send you a video after I figure out how to use this system.  It may take me a few days. Post a list of the baby vocabulary/signs you have learned so that those of us who wish to contact you will have something to get us started.

    • I too am just learning and trying to find reference material at the Library and on-line. A lot out there but very confusing. I need an asl description for echo. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Do not agree with the only one I can find on google. Thank you.
