  • Being Bilingual boosts the brain

  • Communicating across a room when talking is not permitted
     

 

ASL Instruction

Our ASL instruction is provided for various levels starting with beginning level and can continue with more advanced classes.  You will be introduced to ASL and develop some understanding and appreciation for deaf culture.  You can learn ASL in private tutoring sessions or in a classroom setting. We also offer family sign courses which are interactive and fun, with a focus on learning functional sign language for household communication.
 

Our in-class instruction is offered at:

The Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC)
2900 West Cypress Creek Road, Suite 3, in Ft. Lauderdale
 

Due to COVID-19, the classes are currently being held virtually on Zoom.
