    Adjustment to late onset deafness

    The prospect of losing my hearing has always scared me a bit. It's not that I'm scared of becoming deaf. I've been finger spelling and using basic signs for 10 years, now. Over time, I've adapted my communication around my hearing abilities. For the longest time, I didn't even know my hearing...

    :wave:On the bright side, what you're going through is normal. It's been about a decade since I've signed regularly, so I really don't remember much passed finger spelling, so if you want practice there, I'd be glad to relearn the signs you already know :-) my skype name is sdsmithartanddesign...

    Newbies: Quick FAQs

    I always just ask if they'd talk a little slower and face me. It tends to work. When they don't get it the first time, I wave at them, look them square in the eye and say, "I need to read your lips." If I still can't catch on to what they said, I tell them what I know they said and ask them to...

    Also, anyone who would be willing to teach me signs for biomed, I would be delighted to talk to you! I'm having issues getting my hands on proper materials to interpret my A&P book.

    Students Looking for ASL buddies

    Hi! I'm getting back into ASL after nearly a decade since I last did fingerspell interpreting for my best friend in HS. That said, I know how to fingerspell pretty well and I'm getting into learning basic signs, now. Anyone up for practicing on Skype, lemme know :-) Thank you!
