Maybe, that was my problem (smile). Even if I had no vision problem, it would 
have been difficult for me to follow the signs, anyway. Maybe, I gave up too 
soon and should try again. Thanks!

troouble following the kids' signs.  They make up shortcuts, just as we do when 
we speak, and sometimes it can be very hard to follow.

  I have taken sign language classes and also found it frustrating because of 
my vision problem. I had difficulty reading the sign language quickly and 
producing the signs since I had difficulty seeing the exact nature of the signs 
to copy. Like you I am interested in Deaf Culture and wish that I had a more 
effective way to sign. I am glad to know that someone else had the same 
experience as I had. At one time I wanted to teach kids with hearing 
impairments but gave up because signing was difficult for me.

  Hi CIndy
Thanks again for takig the book on. The book will answer that questions and 
many others. I too have been interested n deaf culture but have never learned 
an effective way to learn to sign. I tried a class but it was full imersion and 
very frustating. Anyways, thanks again for the help. If you have any questions, 
I wstil have the file.
