What was your educational experience?

No answer yet

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

I am hearing.

Do you have Deaf or signing family members?

My sister can sign, not as well as she once could, but she can sign.

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


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

I was fairly young when I discovered sign language. A family friend of our worked, and still works, at the day school (PDSD) in Phoenix, Arizona. I knew that Deaf people used sign language, but was not aware of ASL until my Sophomore year in high school, when I took ASL as a foreign language. I ended up loving it and took 3 whole years of ASL in high school.


My name is Matt Trebing. I'm 19 years old, and have been signing for close to 5 years now. Love being around Deaf culture!
