So, hi. As a bit of an introduction, I'm 23, mostly deaf (diagnosed as progessive sensorineural hearing loss a little under 20 years ago; reading around, thinking, and self-observation leads me to strongly suspect the cause is a degenerative issue with the vestibulocochlear nerve. I may be an actualfax speshul snowflake! \o/ I can't afford to get it definitively diagnosed, though), and can more or less count on my fingers the ASL I know that's not fingerspelling.

I decided a few years back that not learning was probably kinda short-sighted of me, but lack of funds for lessons and lack of video-streaming internet (seriously, dialup) hampered me a lot!

Having recently upgraded to highspeed, finally, [personal profile] cme (who's also interested in learning) pointed out to me that there's bound to be some good instructional videos to be had out there on the intertubes.

Neither of us have any idea how to even begin looking for and weeding through videos on YouTube for good basics, though - so naturally I searched DW for a relevant comm.

And I found here! :D So, any advice?
