Hearing Impaired Lefties

I’m quite sure there are more than a few people that are hearing impaired and left-handed. My question is, do they “sign” differently than a person with a hearing impairment who is right handed? Do they sign with the left, what most people sign with the right?


ASL (American Sign Language) is “readable” by both the left and right hands. However I’m sure the percentage of hearing impaired lefties is similar to that of hearing lefties, less than ten percent.

I’m a lefty, and when I sign with a co-worker she can understand everything my left hand says.

Well, Im deaf, but Im a rightie. Lefties just sign the same way using their left hand.
