Learning Sign Language

Here are a few American Sign Language websites and organizations to help those of you who are trying to communicate with a person who signs, but does not hear.  In Sign Language, facial expressions: including the raising or lowering of the eyebrows while signing, and body language are integral parts of communicating. These actions help give meaning to what is being signed, much like vocal tones and inflections give meaning to spoken words.
