signinggirl198

Not really.......

harmonyhofmeister

Can you do this with a group or do you have to do it by your self ?

signinggirl198

I'm almost completely on my own except for a rare couple of hrs with someone else.

harmonyhofmeister

Is there like group thing that i can join or something ?

signinggirl198

Yes....if you don't mind my asking, where do you live? There is usually area's that have many open doors to the deaf or people trying to learn ASL!

harmonyhofmeister

I live on the big island of Hawaii

signinggirl198

Wow! So jealous! Right now, were I live.......its 0 degrees! Well...... Maybe you could do some reseach around your community or others close by and find out if there is a group you can get hooked-up with! If that doesn't work, there should be some online group or practice websites that will help you practice. Just let me know and I'll give you some that I am familiar with.

harmonyhofmeister

OK thank you

signinggirl198

Actually there is a lot You can do. There are chuches for ASL. Hospitals and Law offices can always use You even if only as a free candy striper. You can learn another Sign Language like 2 hand Manual, Or Lorma. The Deaf are not the only ones that need Help. My Wife is Profound Deaf; I am nearly Blind. I've got what is called: Retinitis Pigmentosa ( Tunnel Vision)! I not only have Black Floaters, But Opaque Floaters, I have seen Halo's since early child hood, I'm Losing both; Cones and Rods in my eyes. 2 hand manual is a totally different creature, with different ettiquet. Like You don't touch a Deaf/Blind person on the shoulder's! You come up and tap them on the back of the hand; When they are ready to talk to you, they will turn their palm up. to give You a place to write with Deaf/Blind sign Language. They consider touching their shoulder's an Assult!
