If you're on the go, or whenever you simply need to make a quick reference, you'll find this tiny yet practical book to be a great friend in your immersion into American Sign Language and the Deaf community. This handy little Pocket Guide contains definitions to those not-so-familiar terms that you may encounter at any time, anywhere. This is not an ASL dictionary, but a convenient Deaf community terminology guide. You will learn the definitions of words/acronyms such as: Audism, CODA, DPN, and more!
For anyone wanting to truly understand and communicate within the ASL community, we highly recommend having Start ASL's Terminology Pocket Guide on hand for all situations... Never leave home without it!
