Partnership For Families, Children And Adults Offers Sign Language Classes

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Registration is underway for American Sign Language (ASL) classes to be held at Partnership for Families, Children and Adults Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing located at 1800 McCallie Ave.. The class is open to anyone wanting to learn sign language, and is geared to introduce the learner to the beginning grammar and syntax of ASL.

Partnership’s Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is helping to bridge the communication gap that can often leave the deaf community stranded.

Darwin Ayscue, Partnership’s certified interpreter and class instructor states “these classes are a great way to understand the deaf and hard of hearing community. Deaf people have their own culture and language, and these classes are a great tool in learning to communicate with each other and a great way to meet new people.”

Classes are beginning soon. For more information, including class times and costs please contact Sheila Eubank at 697-3842 or at
