Deaf or Hard of Hearing means a person cannot hear in the “normal” way, but this does not mean there is a deficiency. It simply means we must be creative in accomplishing certain tasks.  Workforce Solutions of Northeast State is sponsoring an eight week class in American Sign Language (ASL) with the focus of not only learning basic to intermediate signs, but learning to think in ASL terms allowing for proper usage. Learning correct context and ASL order is essential to effective communication.  

Upon the completion of this “hands on” course, students will have a better understanding of Deaf history and culture as well as up to intermediate communication skills.  Whether to simply enjoy the beauty of this visual language or to be functional in your work or community environment, this class will give you a “hand up” and put knowledge “at the tips of your fingers”.
