n Saturday, September 27th, there will be a festival in Milwaukee, Inspired: The Art of ASL. I felt honored when they asked me to come and give a presentation on ASL. If you live in the area of Milwaukee, plan on going there and I look forward to meet you! For more information, click here, go to: http://www.dhha-wi.org and click on ASL Festival.
In his presentation, Joey Baer, one of the leading ASL vloggers, will discuss how ASL has inspired millions of people and their families. However, ASL still does not have full equality and respect afforded to other languages. It is widely known that early exposure to ASL increases Deaf AND hearing childrens cognitive, reading, and speaking skills. Joey will point out that it is time to standardize ASL in the Deaf Education system and beyond. Joey will also address ways we can attain full acceptance of and respect for our precious language, ASL, which has inspired our lives.
