Dr. Byron Bridges
Born deaf to deaf parents and growing up with a deaf sister, Dr. Byron W. Bridges has used ASL as the primary language throughout his whole life. He attended deaf schools and public schools. Dr. Bridges earned his Bachelors of Arts degree in Deaf Studies at California State University of Northridge, Masters of Arts (MA) degree in Linguistics from Gallaudet University, and a doctoral degree (Ed.D) in Deaf Studies and Deaf Education at Lamar University.
Dr. Bridges co-authored the book, Deaf Tend Yours. He has written video scripts and produced numerous sign language related videotapes/DVDs. He is a nationally-known teacher and lecturer in ASL and sign language interpretation. Dr. Bridges has been in the field of ASL linguistics, interpreting and post secondary teaching of ASL as a second language for over 30 years. He is a certified Deaf interpreter (CDI), earning the certification through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.
Dr. Bridges is ready to teach you how to sign. Join the new classroom and learn how to sign at your own pace. Learn from an ASL authority who has successfully taught thousands of sign language students and interpreters. Sign Language 101 will have you signing today!
The finger-spelling and receptive practice helped me feel comfortable signing with a Deaf person. I got to practice watching Dr. Byron again and again until I knew what he exactly was signing!
This is the most comprehensive online ASL course I've seen! Dr. Bridges makes it so much fun to learn.
It’s regrettable that I took so long to start learning sign language. I feel like I have a great foundation and vocabulary, and soon I will begin signing with my friends that know ASL.
