ASL Tip of the Week

" Cultural norm: When a phone rings and you answer it, always politely inform a Deaf person (friend or guest) in your presence. Tell who it is (e.g. my aunt) and say "excuse me, please". Make your phone conversion brief if the Deaf person is your company or is waiting for you."
