Hello,

My name is Sara and I am a hearing person that is going to be attending ASL courses at Palomar College in Jan.

I started a new group called Studdy Group in San Diego here if anyone is interested in getting together to practice.
I am so very new at it that I'm a bit intimidated to go to groups that are 100% deaf as I can't communicate fluently yet.

I'm also working on a project called Deaf and Dog. It's a documentary on the lives of deaf people and how they live and communicate with their pets, and the rest of their social lives as well.
I am in need of people who would like to participate, so if you want to know more, please feel free to email me at deafanddog@gmail.com

I look forward to meeting new people and starting something BIG!

Sara:wave:

Are you surprised if dogs are perfectly capable of learning sign? The little guy in my avatar is deaf like me.

Not even a little bit surprised! I've been a pet care professional for many years and worked for dog training facilities. Dogs are smart. BTW, you're dog is a cutie!!

My main objective in a documentary is education. There is a much bigger picture and project behind it, this is just a start.

I'd love to have a facility one day that employs deaf people training dogs sign. I think it will open more job ops and save more pets. That's the jist of it anyways...

Congrats

I too, am working on the same, raised by deaf parents so its easier for me but i'm rusty, i could use some conversation, for practice or answer questions about what i know, as it is, it not proper grammar like the hearing world, at least that how i communicate w ASL. I haven't used my web cam much, I'm willing to practice, if you want some help. :wave: PSS Being a dog lover and trained a few dog a few signs , that sounds so interesting and such a great idea to rescue more dogs, usually rescue are more receptive to training cause they just want to please, and love u for it

Yes, I love to. Currently working on fiquring out how it works on this site. Plus, I'm embarrassed to say, I can't even figure why i can't find the program to at least post a pic, If as if my software doesn't work, So i asked a expert at HP. I hope to rectify the problem soon. Keep in touch, when your ready and what site to web chat on. To get a quicker response you may Email me @ jabez315@gmail.com ; Looking forward to practice : )
