    Very helpful to work with DHH students who are virtual for the school year and whom have IEP goals to learn ASL. Thank you!

    The Family Sign Language and Informational Video Series is a valuable resource! I needed something that was downloadable real time, and could be accessed from various devices for a Spanish-speaking family trying to learn ASL to communicate with their child who is deaf and uses ASL. There are few American Sign Language lessons online that are geared toward families and provided in Spanish. These are particularly good because they cover vocabulary used in everyday routines in the family, and also include lessons on ASL language development and Deaf culture.
