ASL — 15 Comments

  1. My kids had a few ASL words when they were babies. It helped relieve some of the frustration of not being able to say words yet. They knew “please” and “more”and “all done”.

    It’s cool you’re learning it. I know how to make rabbit shadows with my hands but that’s about it. How involved is it? How does it handle grammar?

  2. Ditto – my son didn’t speak a word for long enough to get the doctor’s knickers in a twist, but he had over 20 signs.

    I started losing my hearing somewhere in my teens and was told to learn ASL “so that you won’t be stuck without a language.” Not the greatest motivator for learning, there. But I learned some, then the hearing loss stopped at only mostly deaf, and I’ve lost a lot of it again. Maybe someday…

  3. Hello Brian!!

    GOOD FOR YOU!! I am happy that you are re-learning ASL! it is so easy to forget the signs over years when you are not around deaf people! It is allright, same for me, when i am not around my deaf friends and it is easy to forget some signs- I know its odd since I am deaf- should be able to know all signs (yea right, impossible!) smile!

    Im glad that I got to meet you during CWDS training, though it was tough training for everyone else! haha, but thank you for teaching and helping us out and putting up with our tantrums! haha! we are still having tantrums here in office with CWDS, smile, but it should be fine eventually!

    Hope everything is well with you, spending more time on bikes now after done with cwds training, i bet?? haha.. Have a wonderful holidays and keep it up with ASL!!! ASL ROCKS!
