Hello, my name is Danelle Gournaris. I am the manager for the Minnesota's Deaf Mentor Family Program where we teach hearing families with DHH children American Sign Language. Here are a few basic signs that you can use if you meet a deaf or hard of hearing person who uses American Sign Language. You can also use these signs with your friends and teachers.
