Hey there.  Sorry to hear that your having trouble with this.  Both your hearing issue and the website.  Learing to sign when you're already deaf and an adult is going to be hard.  I don't envy you your situation. 

You might want to find some websites that you can learn from before you look into any classes.  Classes tend to be geared toward hearing people taking ASL.  They don't tend to be geared for late deaf learners.  Lifeprint.com and the corresponding YouTube videos with Bill Vicars, they also have a facebook group called Lifeprint ASLU, might be helpful.  Dr Vicars is deaf himself and his youtube channel uses a lot of visual aids that might benefit you since you won't be able to hear any spoken instructions in a video. 

I hope this helps you.  Learning ASL is going to be difficult as a late learner, but I'm sure you can do it.

    • Hi, I started learning ASL about a year ago from videos and a book. I am 67 years old, retired and wanted to learn a second language. Unfortunately, no one else in my life is interested and I don't have anyone to sign with.  Best regards, Morris
    • I'm Simon from the UK. I am interested in finding out about resources for learning asl in the uk. For students travelling to the states. I have found a few things online but was hoping I could join this forum to help and to learn more about asl. Thanks
    • Hi I am Brittany. I have auditory processing issue and selective mutism. I have been learning asl off and on for most of my life. It is a special interest of mine but it is difficult when I dont have anyone to sign with. 
    • Thx  You too
