I do hope that people accept and understand the points made in this interesting article. I have Partial Vocal Paralysis. It is difficult for me to speak. I went through ASL classes TWICE attempting to learn the “Proper” order - I just do not get it; and I even have trouble using signed English because I can not remember all the signs. Family and friends have mostly cut me from their lives. My main problem is that people in my area who do sign are so sloppy, they may as well be swatting at flies and they get irritated at me for not understanding them. Now I mainly communicate by writing, I find that is much less stressful. I have a blackboard application on my tablet. For some bizarre reason most people assume that I am also deaf and read lips, even when I tell them that I CAN hear!
