I'm far from fluent in asl but I did take a class in high school, and would love to learn more. I had to google map to see how far corvallis is. 1.5 hours away! Darn

I know a family who has a 2 year old son who is deaf and is receiving ECI services to learn to sign. Their older child is in preschool with a child of mine. They are a sweet, sweet family who came from Mexico not all that long ago and are learning English in addition to ASL.

We were just sitting at the preschool yesterday going over some signs with the little boy and his big brother. It was adorable.

They own a local business - PM me if you'd like to know which one so you can stop by and say hello (and pick up something delicious!).

Hi, there nice to meet you!! I live in the Salem area and I have a deaf brother. I am conversationally fluent in ASL (have been speaking it for 20 years...?? Long time!!) I am currently teaching my daughter to sign as well so she can talk with her uncle. (She is 20 months old) I would love to talk with you!!

I am also new to the area.

Feel free to send me a private message or an email!!
