Patient Comments: American Sign Language - Experience

Please describe your experience with American Sign Language.

Comment from: MargieK, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: December 16

I learned sign language (mainly) finger spelling years ago. Still today I use it occasionally. Mainly in retail in speaking to customers. I even had a customer that every time he came, he would ask for me. Although he spoke, he was still deaf. This was just great for him, that someone knew a little about ASL (American Sign Language).
