    Korean Drama with deaf character

    Korean drama called The Devil has one character who is deaf and signs. Her daughter also signs- the daughter is the main character. I don't think the actress playing the deaf mother is deaf because she looks familiar to me, like I've seen her on another drama, but I could be wrong. There...

    Paying for hearing aids?

    My son-in-law, who is deaf in one ear because of his service in Iraq, says he would be interested in a hearing aid but they are too expensive, and the military won't pay for one for him because 'they issued earplugs in basic training." I suggested he go back to the VA with his father-in-law...

    I've been invited to go to the Open house at state school for the deaf

    My deaf friend asked me to go and I said yes. Now I'm getting cold feet. I don't think my signing skills are up to it, and I don't have any idea what happens at their open house.

    How did you learn, or how are you learning, ASL?

    30 years ago I took sign language classes at college. I took three or four altogether, in two states. I thought before it was two classes, but I just remembered I took a couple others offered at the library: a beginning course at the library in Arizona when I was a teen. I think it was ASL...
