American Sign Language

American Sign Language (ASL) users convey critical information with their hands through the use of handshapes, locations, movements, palm orientations and non-manual grammatical signals (eyes, face, head, shoulders).  Providing full visual access to communication and language, ASL can convey subtle, complex, and abstract thoughts.  In short, ASL can communicate anything.
