Check out this rich online resource called A.S.L.U., a free sign language website that offers lessons, videos, tests, quizzes, and everything you need to educate yourself to communicate with deaf friends and family.
I recently started working closely with a deaf woman in our church and really wanted to be able to communicate better with her. I was pretty excited to find this site because the lessons were well organized and started out with valuable conversation tools I could use right away instead of just vocabulary lists. I was frustrated with other resources that would teach me a bunch of words, but not how to ‘chat’ with my new friend.
It’s basically a full high school or college ASL curriculum offered online for free. Take a few moments a day to do a lesson or encourage your children to. It’s lots of fun, keeps the mind agile, and can help bridge a communication barrier in all kinds of situations.
