What was your educational experience?

I took an intermediate course in ASL @ Gallaudet University many years ago. I also began a AAS degree in ASL study at Montgomery College in Rockville, MD. I do plan to continue this program here in NC if possible.

Are you Deaf, deaf, Hard of Hearing, or Hearing?

I am hard of hearing in my right ear.

Do you have Deaf or signing family members?

no

Is your home TV always set to show the Closed Captions?

No

When did you first become aware of the existence of ASL?

I became aware of ASL over 35 years ago thru a deaf co-worker who taught me sign phrases. I only knew the alphabet at the time. We are still friends today.

Introduction

I relocated to Raleigh in 2006 from the WDC area. I have a hearing loss that is getting worse so I use a Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) . I want to communicate more in ASL & I am excited about meeting others who are as passionate about ASL as I am.

What Betty is saying about this Meetup Group

This was a very engaging group. I hope the new-comers/beginners do not get discouraged or intimidated with all of the fast signing going on. I felt that way at first but I continue to come and learn and feel more and more at ease communicating. It has really helped me to improve my skill. I thank GOD for this group and the opportunity to continue learning. and growing.
