Cultural Lesson in Introducing Oneself
It is important to know that Culturally the conversations are around who you know in the Deaf Community, and you and your communication partner's connection with the Deaf Community. By Toni Lynn Van Bramer and Judy Moulton. Illustrations by Elaine Ernst Schneider and Mankit Chan. September 18, 2002

Body Talk for Signers
A “good” signer/interpreter is one who is flexible, i.e. willing to try several means of conveying the message. Many signers would suggest using Total Communication, i.e. signing, mouthing, using facial expressions, gestures, and body movement – selecting the best combination to convey the message to an audience of mixed preferences and needs.
