My primary concern for my Deaf child would be communication. Are my ASl skills good enough to present the baby with a full language model? When that child grows up, will they feel connected with their parents? Will I be able to communicate with them well enough to talk about complex things such as abstract ideas and other things that come up in conversation? That sort of thing. I would just be worried about making language connections with the child.

  1. Rachael I completely agree with you! I am taking ASL classes right now but even then would my skills be up to par when I have children? Would my child learn quicker than me and begin signing more than I know? I don't think there is any good way to answer these questions. The only thing I can see to do is prepare your self for every obstical you could face as a parent of a child who is deaf.
