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.

    • Hi everyone! I just started learning ASL a few days ago and hope to further my learning by practicing through video chat on here! I am an extreme beginner so I'm in search of other beginners or experienced signers that are willing to be patient.  If anyone is interested, I would love to schedule a time! Can't wait to learn more!!
    • Hi Michelle, I have been learning ASL for 3 months or so but have yet to sign with anybody. I would love to chat with you if you are still looking for friends?
    • Hi. My name is Camille. I have been learning ASL for the past 7 months because my infant is HOH and I would like to be able to support his communication. I'm pretty new to signing but I am eager to learn. 
    • I have 2 semesters of ASL but I need brushing up. I would love to be an interpreter someday. Looking to practice with someone (deaf, HOH, or hearing) who is PATIENT please.
