ASL in Public Education

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I am writing this for some research for a paper I'm writing and would appreciate if you guys would answer some questions.

-What are your thoughts on implementing American Sign Language in public school?
-Do you have any concerns?
-What would be some benefits?
-If this happens, should more middle and/or high schools offer more courses relating to American Sign Language and the Deaf culture?
-What do you think would/could happen to schools for the deaf if this happens? Would they keep running or, after a while, would deaf students be spread out around hearing schools?
 

**For Deaf and/or Hard-of-Hearing people**

-Do you think it would help you now even though you have hearing aids?
-How well do your hearing aids work?
-Are/were there any obstacles you came across with your hearing aids?

If there is anything else you think would help, please feel free to add that in your response.

Communication plays an essential role in everyone’s life. There are so many benefits if we provide ASL to children in public schools. Like  learning sign language aides young hearing children, including babies and toddlers, in developing oral language quicker. Children learn better with a ASL translator if we provide to them. There numbers of companies that are providing ASL translator services one of them is Languages Unlimited.

    • Hello! I am looking for a practice buddies/friends. I always loved ASL is very interesting to me and I would love to someday become fluent. I know some of the basics. I need a lot of practice, I am really slow at finger spelling, again I am a beginner. I truly do want to get better. I want my hands and conversation to flow. For anyone that is looking to practice the basics let me know or anyone that wants to just practice in front of someone else to get the awkwardness I'm willing to watch, it will help me pick up some of the basics. 
    • Hi .. I’d love to talk to you in sign and message I’m trying to learn asl .. I’m form the UK but find ASL way more fun to learn than BSL .. message me back soon 😊
    • I am in ASL 2 at my college and have been wanting to get much better at asl. I do my best to study but it would be some much easier if i had someone to talk to who knew ASL fluently. I severely lack in facial expressions only because i feel like i look ridiculous. I would love if anyone here would want to help me out with going over my lessons and sentence sturggure, oh lord i need help with sentence structure 😅 Thank you for your time!
