AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE
American Sign Language brought me hope and comfort when my children were showing signs of delayed speech. They had multiple ear infections that had affected their hearing and speech from a young age. I was fortunate enough to have a close friend who had a son who was Hard of Hearing, and her other children had hearing loss. We decided that we should create a group for any children who had a need to learn ASL. So we started ASL Junction. Which will be a Non-profit soon.
We work with the Deaf Community, the Special Needs community, and the Hearing community to teach all children ASL, so we can grow a larger community of Signers for those that need to sign, and greater compassion and empathy for those that do not need to sign.
As a yoga instructor I have gained great benefit in my personal life from practicing Iyengar Yoga. I want to share those benefits with the Deaf community and am working on being able to teach Iyengar Yoga to the Deaf Community.
