Hi. I'm Paula Clark. I'm from Seattle, Washington. I work as an advocate at Abused Deaf Women's Advocacy Services (ADWAS). Having DeafBlind family means that PTASL has always been part of my life. I love the 3D visuo-spatial nature of ASL which offers dynamic lenses to view and express a multitude of perspectives. PTASL incorporates the element of touch providing a ground to capture even greater richness and depth and more nuanced perspectives. I think PTASL is invaluable because through touch, access to communication, shared understanding, and connection is possible. #WhyISignPTASL
