Are you raising a deaf child?
Did you know that ASDC is now offering five, 30-minute interactive sessions with Deaf adult role models to 500 families?
The American Society for Deaf Children recognizes the importance of Deaf adult role models in the lives of families raising deaf children. Fewer than 25 Deaf Mentor programs currently exist to serve families in the United States. Considering, one in one-thousand babies are born deaf, and 92% of those babies are born to hearing parents, most hearing families do not experience what we see as crucial interactions with Deaf adults.
In hopes of bridging that gap and using technology to reach beyond traditional Deaf mentoring methods, ASDC is offering five, 30-minute SignOn sessions (a $100 value) to the first 500 ASDC Member Families who request codes.
SignOn is a virtual immersion program that lets you practice your ASL live with a Deaf adult from the comfort of your own computer. Our families who participate in this new offering will experience the following benefits:
- Practice ASL with a Deaf adult
- Choose your own topics, personalized to your needs and skill
- Flexible scheduling, available 7 days a week
- Private platform, no downloads needed
- One-on-one practice with personalized feedback
- Review your sessions anytime through your SignOn dashboard
This program is available to 500 members of the American Society for Deaf Children.
