American Sign Language

This course responds to the need to train people capable of entering the silent world of the deaf using ASL, a manual communication system from manual spelling using the alphabet to the basic signs most used by the deaf community to communicate.   

   This method of communication is considered a language like any other such as Spanish or English, therefore, it is not universal. ASL expresses the same words as spoken language using hand movements along with facial and body gestures. This course also teaches the student to consider the rules that must be followed and to differentiate between an informal or formal conversation.  

TITLE III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it unlawful for any business, building, or other premises open to the public to discriminate against people with disabilities. These public places, in addition to government agencies, include restaurants, hotels, theaters, doctors' offices, pharmacies, stores, museums, libraries, parks, private schools, and day care centers, among others. In order to facilitate equal access, a public place or establishment must provide auxiliary aids and services for deaf people when necessary. Examples of auxiliary aids and services include interpreters for the deaf through American Sign Language (ASL). Therefore this course is aimed at the entire community interested in developing ASL. It is necessary to comply with the laws of this country that these types of courses be developed with the hope that we can make private agencies aware of the importance of enforcing these laws.
