Dag’s Blog

Introduction

In this Blog I will be talking about some of my life experiences, love of my family, my excitement and adventures with ASL and Cued Speech, Raising our Deaf son, lessons I’ve learned and mistakes I’ve made.

I’ll tell you about developing my two game apps, SignCueQuest and CueQuest, to help folks practice ASL and Cued Speech, and how I am doing “Word Of The Day” YouTube videos for ASL and Cued Speech.

I’ll be posting a new blog post every Friday.
