I work in the Sign Language Laboratory in the NTID Center on Cognition and Language where I focus on issues relating to sign language acquisition in adult second language (L2) learners of ASL . We are currently developing new tools to be used in ASL-L2 proficiency assessment, as well as investigating whether there are additional cognitive benefits (beyond the general benefits of acquiring a second language) to acquiring an L2 in the visual modality.
