Hi guys!  I'm Alyson from Kansas.  Looking for people to practice with, though unfortunately I don't have webcam yet (it's on my list for next month).  I'm brand new at ASL, I started learning in June after I found out that holy smokin' lizards, I cannot understand a single word people are saying anymore.  I'm not deaf, but I have horrible, horrible APD (Auditory Processing Disorder) and relied almost completely on lip reading.  I didn't realize just how MUCH I relied on lip reading until the mask mandate came into place and everyone started mumbling muffled monkey gibberish at me instead of words.   So I'm crash coursing like mad from every online source I can   and would love to hear from others with APD, if you have tips or tricks or frustrations.
