American Sign Language (ASL) is a complete, complex language that employs signs made by moving the hands combined with facial grammar and body language. It is the primary language of the Deaf and is one of several communication options used by the Deaf and/or hard-of-hearing. Our skilled instructor will make learning sign language a fun and engaging experience. This program is physically accessible to people with disabilities.
