  • Communicating with babies and small children
  • Promoting cultural awareness and cross-cultural understanding
  • Learning new languages that help exercise your cognitive process and promote creative thinking, problem solving, and mental flexibility
  • Creating open new employment opportunities or helping you earn needed PLUs or CEUs

American Sign Language will provide an introduction to deaf culture and manual communication. This four-week course will address a range of topics and include activities for receptive and expressive practice such as games, videos, and partner/group work.
