The amazing Lori Neubauer has been the first point of contact for our agency for a long time – our whole community is familiar with her friendly demeanor and commitment to providing exemplary customer service. After more than fourteen years of wonderful work, Lori will be retiring at the end of this week. She will be very missed, but we are all extremely happy for her and wish her nothing but the best in her well-earned next chapter. We had a virtual retirement party for her last week and enjoyed telling some of our favorite stories of working with Lori. Some of our staff even virtually brought her favorite cake – Tres Leches. Lori’s last day will be Friday, April 30 – so you still have time to send her a note of congratulations. Lori – thank you for everything. We’re going to miss you!

ASL Lights! Deaf ASL presenters show different meanings of LIGHT. ASL + ESOL learning experiences, not lessons. Fun for all ages! Please share and give feedback! English by Eye YouTube channel: American Sign Language + reading
5 ways ASL and English are different Informational content authored by Chris Wixtrom © 2021 Many thanks to Trix Bruce (Deaf) for the ASL translation! American Sign Language and English are equally complex, with different origins and modes. More ASL + English videos on the English by Eye YouTube channel, a project of the volunteer-based nonprofit organization, ASL Access. PM through Facebook to help with 20-second ASL videos or voice-overs!

Illusions of Access: Lessons from a Pandemic https://youtu.be/MHENuP9Q91I Register: https://visitbmc.com/index.php/join-us/illusions-of-access-lessons-from-a-pandemic During this presentation, we will review and discuss data that was collected during the Covid-19 pandemic. Videos were gathered from interpreted press conferences that were televised in nine states. Subjects were both Interpreters and Deaf people who participated in activities designed to examine their comprehension of interpreted press conferences. Findings and recommendations will be shared.
At the vet with ASL! Pick up English and American Sign Language as this Deaf educator describes real-world photos. On-screen sentences have voiced narration. For captions: “CC” For a transcript: Click three dots (…) under video, then click “Open transcript.” ASL Access sponsors English by Eye YouTube videos.
This Deaf ASL presenter never uses "the sign for dry." Instead, she describes scenes with multiple meanings of this word. Visit English by Eye on YouTube for ASL videos that enhance English reading comprehension with conceptually accurate signing. As Deaf ASL presenters describe fun real-life scenes, viewers apply high-level cognitive skills in two languages to achieve reading comprehension. CAPTIONS: "CC" TRANSCRIPT: 1. Click dots (...) under video. 2. "Open transcript"
Bilingual language acquisition: American Sign Language + English! English by Eye on YouTube: Fun for all ages and all language levels • Deaf ASL presenters, CC, transcripts, real-life photos & clips • Playlist: “1 word with different meanings” (contextual reading) • Playlist: “ASL can explain English!” (ASL in everyday life)
I produce free YouTube videos encouraging reading skills and American Sign Language acquisition. Gone fishing with ASL! Pick up vocabulary, grammar, & idioms from English and ASL. In YouTube: CAPTIONS: Click "CC" at the bottom of the video. TRANSCRIPT: Look UNDER the video. Click the three dots (...) and then click "Open transcript." ASL Access is a fully volunteer nonprofit organization that sponsors free English by Eye YouTube videos.
Can American Sign Language (ASL) be helpful with a deaf student who has autism and no communication skills? A special education teacher asked me this question. My response: Yes. Communication begins with receiving and expressing meaning. Like all languages, ASL establishes communication. However, be aware that American Sign Language and English are completely different languages. While using “sim-com” (talking and signing together) can help with communication, remember that sim-com is not American Sign Language. For learning ASL, I recommend Lifeprint. For improving reading comprehension, I recommend English by Eye videos. In videos from the playlist “1 word with different meanings!” Deaf ASL presenters describe real-world scenes, encouraging readers to figure out the meaning of each on-screen sentence. In “10 faces in ASL!” American Sign Language helps with reading! ASL and English are not the same. Learn both! Find more fun videos on the English by Eye YouTube channel, supported by ASL Access, a 100% volunteer NPO.
Real-world scenes from everyday life help you learn English vocabulary, grammar, and idioms. This video is fun for ASL and ESL learners! Encouraging contextual reading, English by Eye YouTube videos enhance American Sign Language and English language acquisition. Deaf presenter: Abbas Ali Behmanesh
