    Testimonials

    • "SIGN WITH ROBERT is an excellent product that is easily accessible by streaming online anywhere. It's ideal for a wide range of audiences, from new parents of a Deaf child to ASL students of all ages and backgrounds. This curriculum isn't just for self-taught students, but can also be used by ASL teachers to support existing course materials. I give it two thumbs up."

      Ben JarashowDeaf Studies Coordinator, Utah Valley University
    • "I have had the good fortune to view SIGN WITH ROBERT with Robert DeMayo. The production quality of the videos is very high and Robert is an outstanding performer and a very skilled ASL artist. It has been awhile since anything like this has been produced that provides contemporary examples of ASL. There are many aspects of the production that will be useful for classroom, workshop, individual, and presentation purposes. Robert's participation in this project lends a high level of credibility to the work. I find the broad range of topics provided in the collection beneficial to many different people who may have an interest in ASL, Deaf culture and the history of Deaf people."
