|According to statistics published by Gallaudet University, between 9 and 22 of every 1,000 people in the United States are deaf or suffer from a hearing impairment (.009-.022%). The numbers go up to .037-.14% when including those with some degree of hearing loss. Knowing at least the basic fingerspelling alphabet of ASL (American Sign Language) is not only useful, but often necessary, for anyone working with the public--EMTs, nurses, doctors, receptionists, police officers, etc.|
