Greetings

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone. My name is Jessica. I am new here. I made this account to help me learn how to sign. I've been wanting to learn sign language for a while now but never had time.  I am currently in nursing school so I personally want to learn sign language so i can connect with the patient I'm working with rather than having a translator. I never know what to say how how to speak to someone who is deaf and i feel bad for that. I want to learn just so they feel important, and that they can communicate with me.

    • 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.
    • I liked it. very creative.
    • Hello. My name is Melissa and recently lost my hearing completely in my right ear and my left is partial. So I am trying to get as much practice in as possible. If anyone would like to chat, practice, whatever..... I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
