    Why are deaf people against those with hearing learning asl?

    Also, another thing that's been coming up a lot around 'disability' in general, but for me specifically as a profoundly hard of hearing person trying to access supports in education/whatever: people approach me with caution, and as though I'm asking for things that are completely unreasonable...

    Why are deaf people against those with hearing learning asl?

    As someone who probably should have been raised with ASL and Deaf culture, but now at 38 is just 'getting into it' in the last few years, and having to teach myself everything and having no access to Deaf culture, I have mixed views.

    Tricks for learning

    Hey! So I have this processing issue - in addition to severe bilateral hearing loss, and tinnitus, I also am a slow processor which is tricky when learning ASL. I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue, and if so, how you deal with it when learning sign. I've been learning with my wife for...

    Learning basic asl then getting master

    I never had the opportunity to learn growing up and I'm trying to learn now, at 38. I'm in the same boat - been relying on hearing aids the last 5-6 years with not very good success. My wife is also hard of hearing and we've been trying to learn together. It's a slow road! Not many resources...

    Hey! I just joined the site and I'm looking to connect with other deaf and hoh people. I have been hoh my whole life, though my condition is progressive and I have found that hearing aids don't help. I have been told I have audioneuropathy, and I also have tinnitus, which makes it impossible to...

    Hey Etsuko! I am new to this site too. I have severe hearing loss, to the point of being 'legally deaf' by definition. I struggle to communicate, still learning to sign. Also looking to meet deaf friends here :) Hope your weekend is going well so far!

    Learning to lip read and wanting to make new friends

    Welcome Lyn :) I have severe hearing loss in both ears but unfortunately I have not found lip reading hugely helpful, although I can understand basically nothing without being able to see a person's face/mouth. That said I hope you learn what you need. There are some reasources in a few...
