Effort to communicate is appreciated

by Anonymous

Effort means the world to those of us who have English communication issues! I have a somewhat severe stutter. I can’t get many words out, I can’t say my own name. It got to the point where I wasn’t communicating with anyone because no one had the patience to deal with my stutter. I started teaching myself ASL two years ago. I have friends who learned a bit of ASL so that they could better communicate with me. I sign, they answer in English. The point of this is to say that the effort to communicate is very, very, much appreciated!
