From Dr. Vicars – “I encourage sign language students to find a qualified local Deaf tutor or American Sign Language (ASL) instructor to help you learn ASL or fingerspelling. This ASL fingerspelling site is a little tool I put together to help my college ASL students get some receptive fingerspelling practice. It isn't perfect, but it seems to help so I figured I'd share it with the world.“
In March 1988, Gallaudet University experienced a watershed event that led to the appointment of the 124-year-old university's first deaf president. Since then, Deaf President Now (DPN) has become synonymous with self-determination and empowerment for deaf and hard of hearing people everywhere.
April 15 is the National American Sign Language Day. It was “established” on April 15, 1817, corresponding to the same day American School for the Deaf was open. #ASLDay
