1. American Sign Language Services

ASL is a sign language that is commonly used in United States and Canada. It is a complex visual-spatial language used by the deaf and hard of hearing families in North America. The American Sign Language is the use of facial expressions, gestures and hand movements to convey the thoughts of a person. It uses the physical means of communication like the lips pattern and body language instead of oral sound during communication. The language is easy to learn since most of the signs were made to mimic the actual phrase or word it is representing.
