Hearing person with desire to learn ASL!


My name is Megan. I am a hearing person. I currently live in California, but I will be moving to Denver around the first week of August to settle in before beginning my academics at the University of Denver.

I have taken two ASL courses at the college I attended here in California, and I absolutely loved it! I very much want to continue to learn the language as well as acquaint myself w/ fellow friendly signers (Deaf and hearing!)

I do not have my class schedule yet so I am not sure which days I will be available to take an ASL class, but it would be nice to have someone to contact once I do have things figured out.

If I cannot attend a regular class, I would still like to be involved w/ the Deaf community in any way I can. Any guidance is appreciated =]

Signing Works - Deaf Sign Language Dolls With Hearing Aids

My name is Emily Paige and I own Signing Works Inc in California. We make the "I Can Sign" doll and bunny.

Our dolls are all hand made in America, with hearing aids ;)

We have had such breakthroughs made with our signing dolls and bunnies.

We are working to supply a doll or bunny to every signing child.

We are currently working with the Lions clubs across the nation to help accomplish this.

We would love to introduce ourselves, since we are a new company.

Please check out our site: and our news coverage.

(We are in the process of updating our web site, we have a temp one up now with products, pictures and news coverage.)

Here is more info us below: Our relationship with the Deaf began 30 years ago when we were in the ministry. Through the years we have maintained those friendships, and our appreciation for the deaf culture has deepened.

We will always be grateful to those we met and the inspiration they gave.

Signing Works, as a business, began in 2009. The I Can Sign Doll© has lived in our hearts and minds for much longer. Our conviction was that deaf and hard-of-hearing children needed a doll that reflected their unique abilities.

We happily discovered that hearing children, as well as those with special needs, love them just as much.

The I Can Sign Doll© is our first endeavor. Other projects are underway. Each is designed to promote the deaf culture and to make it more recognizable throughout the world.

We invite you all to be a part our success through asking questions and making suggestions. A seed you plant might be the next great idea!

Thank you for being a friend,

From all of us at Signing Works
