The Marion Downs Center Sign Language Program introduces students to a new way of understanding the world through a second language. The program is designed to teach functional sign language to be used in everyday interactions. We serve teachers, parents, and others who are interested in developing the ability to more effectively communicate with varied populations.
We provide four skill levels (Beginner's, Beginner's II, Intermediate, and Intermediate II) and various workshops throughout the year. The program curriculum is built on American Sign Language (ASL) grammar rules and concepts, yet accommodates each student’s preference for the language (ASL, PSE, SEE).
Registration now available for our 2016 summer sign classes!
