Frequently asked questions

Isn’t sign language a universal language?

No, in fact there are variations in various parts of the U.S. and even in Texas, just like there are different spoken accents and slang. Most countries use sign language native to their country’s language. The majority of Deaf in the U.S. use American Sign Language. Some Caribbean islands and parts of Mexico also use ASL.
