Professional Development

Perspectives ASL classes are designed to help professionals who support children, adolescents and adults who use sign language as a primary means of communication. Teachers, parents, family members, friends and caregivers will also benefit greatly from taking these classes as they build the necessary skills to communicate with the Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing person.
