Hello! My name is Michael. When I was three years old, my younger brother became sick with spinal meningitis. In the process, he became deaf with an almost complete hearing loss. This difficult situation provided a unique opportunity for my family and I to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). My brother was not sent away to a deaf or hard of hearing school. He grew up with us, his hearing family, and we were active in the Deaf community.

As a former police officer and federal investigator, I often used ASL to communicate with and assist members of the Deaf community. I decided to create simple, step-by-step ASL courses because sign language is a useful and fun skill to have.

Like learning any language, it opens your mind and creates the ability to communicate with a whole new group of people. Sign. Smile. Be Delighted.To learn more about Able Lingo and what they have to offer, take a look at their LinkedIn profile here.
