Conversational American Sign Language

“Hello, how may I help you?” A simple request, unless you can’t hear. Individuals who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing face this situation every day. Join others in learning about the American Deaf Community and the Deaf culture. Students will learn some basic communication skills to assist you when interacting with deaf individuals as well as American Sign Language vocabulary, grammar and fingerspelling. The students will demonstrate beginning expressive and receptive conversational American Sign Language (ASL) skills and interaction with Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals will be encouraged. Social interaction information and course handouts will be provided.
