School Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm from Michigan. I plan on going back to school soon. I would like to make a career in ASL but like strictly focus on ASL and no other courses that does not relate to ASL. I come from a low income family, so I'm looking to just commute there back and forth. Anyone know any good recommendations?

If you are looking to become an ASL interpreter, you will need to have a bachelors in something.  The governing board for interpreters requires that you have a bachelors in order to sit for the exam.

I think that to be a teacher of the deaf you do not have to have a degree in deaf education, but you would need a teaching certificate.

    • So, greetings to the community here.  I posted once awhile ago about the Alcatraz tour in ASL. I have since definitely figured out why some people want the ASL tour and others just want the printed tour. But I have a new one for you guys, and this is potentially controversial. OK so I have a co-worker who is on the Autism spectrum.  He received a large group of Deaf visitors.  My co-worker enjoys asking people where they are from etc, I imagine he enthusiastically engaged with the visitors. Now here is the interesting part, the Deaf visitors did a O.? a "uh-huh knowing-eye-look" hard to explain, and then they did a beard-stroking movement accompanied with the eyebrow-raised thing.   What were they saying?  What was this beard stroking thing, they were definitely commenting on my co-workers autism.     PS:  Feel free to PM me if you want, I don't think this is too controversial but yeah.
