    Turning off the Voice?

    Okay, this may be my most bizarre question, ever. But, here it goes. I want to learn ASL. Normally when I try to learn a language, I immerse myself in the language. I try to even think in that language. I am having a real problem with that, however, when it comes to ASL. I try to watch...

    Say vs Hearing in ASL?

    Hey everyone. I was watching one of the Bravo ASL lessons and I noticed the sign to say a person is hearing looks the same as the sign for "say" or "speak". Are they the same? Is there a difference? :ty:

    CI users and the Deaf community

    As a hearing person, I've been reading on here and learning a lot. I really appreciate being allowed to sort of join your world. Today I saw a post that disturbed me... from what I understood, it was a hearing mom of a child with a CI. She talked about her child learning speech more...

    Question about ASL class?

    Hey I was just wondering if it is normal for an ASL class to have no interaction with the Deaf community or people who actually use ASL as their main language? We have a sign language class in our university communication disorders department, but it seems to be mainly for speech-language...

    This could only happen to me.

    So my husband bought a catapult last weekend to make... it was from a little kit, with wooden pieces. Since then, he has amused himself by launching little balls of clay across the house. Then, he got bored, and launched peanut M&Ms at me, trying to get them down my shirt. :giggle: A...

    Healthy snack

    I was at Sam's Club this weekend, and they had samples of Activia yogurt... when we told her that we already had some Yoplait yogurt at home, she said we could freeze it and eat it as a healthy snack! I tried it... it was really good, really healthy, but it took forever to eat because you had...

    A Question about Questions?

    Hi everyone, I have a question (actually, I have a million, but... just one for today lol). When people notice that you are deaf or hoh, would you rather them ask questions or not ask you? Do you get tired of lots of questions or is it cool for you to know someone is interested in your...
