Posted on May 19, 2016 by HK Smith

It is a sunny day in our home base of Metro Detroit, Michigan… a perfect time to let your laundry dry on the line. That said, it is not the best idea to leave your American Sign Language learning out to dry. Just like any‪ language, ASL requires practice, so this is a colorful reminder to do some […]

Help!  I see Deaf People! So now that you have some knowledge of ASL and Deaf Culture, you will begin to notice more Deaf people around you.  Yes, they have always been there; you are just now becoming aware of them.  You may be thinking to yourself, “Self….what do I do?!  Do I approach them?  […]
