Thank you for sharing sign language signs. I have a older son who is deaf and is away at college, so I don't get to sign much. So hence to say, "If you don't use it, you lose it." Thank you for helping me to remember.

As a hearing/speaking person i love this site,but my only complaint is that only deaf people are advocated for yet what about mutes? I am learning ASL for my daughter who is nonverbal. She hears maybe not completely perfect but is mute so needs ASl to communicate with the world. Why are nonverbals never mentioned?

It's rare to find a Facebook page with so many interesting videos and posts regarding the sign language around the world. It's time to face the reality, the sign language must be taught in schools and people need to understand that expressing through signs is, sometimes, more effective than words. Love this page!!!

Sign language is a terrible form of communication that only 1% or less of people understand Writen langauge exists and so does digital text That is the most easiest form of communication for deaf people to non deaf people Text to speech programs exist many of them are used for live streaming for gamers

Believe.....We need to show the disability, hearing parents, Deaf people, deaf-blind, hard of hearing, hearing loss, low vision, children, adults, teenager that "WE CAN" do anything to break a leg in order to prove our ability to DO IT! The most powerful silence of the deaf and disability community. Your Beauty, your skin, We are an example of God work and a role model so that the young and older people can look up on us and say: I want to be like her or him!! I CAN do this!!!! We have a hard drive to prove that we need to"Believe in ourself" Our DREAM is not stopped our deafness"!!! The greatest challenge is to beat the odd! Never stopped our deafness or disability. We need to work harder than the hearing world so that they can see us WE CAN!!! I CAN!! YOU CAN!! CAN is a strong positive to motivate us. We should treat people who has different languages. I absolutely love ASL Sign Languages. My hearts goes to the deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind and parents who have deaf children..Passion of LOVE!! Thank you for sharing the world. Join my Fan Page: Beautiful Sign Languages. LOVE, Actress Ellen Rice, Atlanta, GA YOU CAN!! I CAN, WE CAN, CAN DO IT!! THEY CAN!! CAN, CAN, CAN,!!!!!
