Sign Language Classes
Deaf Awareness Seminars and Workshops
ASL Interpreter Training Programs; Video Translation, and Outreach Services
Through our collaboration, we can offer on-site Sign Language courses by working with your training coordinator/center or human resources development office. Your classes can be held at your building or any other place of your choice in the Washington, DC and Baltimore metro areas; we will accommodate your choice of class schedule. Our flair is developing task-oriented, tailored curriculum incorporating your agency-related terminology and communication situations. Nearly all of our instructors are Deaf and native ASL users with years of experience in Sign Language education.
This one-time seminar is great for any workplace that recently hired or plans to hire a new Deaf employee and where the other employees need to learn more about Deaf culture in general such as getting a Deaf person's attention properly and working effectively with Sign Language interpreters. You can opt for a more intensive training such as mediation or improving teamwork between Deaf employees and their hearing co-workers when there may be recurring miscommunication or misconception about anything relating to deafness, Deaf culture, or American Sign Language.
