Customizable Sign Language Classes
Whether you prefer virtual or in-person learning, we offer flexible and personalized classes that cater to the unique needs of your organization. Our experienced instructors come from diverse backgrounds and bring their own individual sign language expertises to the table. They can teach a variety of sign languages, including American Sign Language (ASL), British Sign Language (BSL), Irish Sign Language (ISL), Singapore Sign Language (SgSl), and Japanese Sign Language (JSL), among others. Our classes can be customized in terms of frequency and duration to best fit your schedule. Our goal is to make sign language education accessible and attainable for everyone in a low-stress, friendly environment where clients will become confident sign language users and enjoy learning a new language with our instructors.
Enhance Your Workplace Culture Through Sign Language
Offering opportunities for employees to learn sign language either through classes or workshops in the workplace enhances your organization’s culture. Employee testimonials have shown that individuals who have participated in these programs report improved communication, heightened cognitive processes, and a more cohesive and inclusive work environment. Learning sign language can help employees better connect with their Deaf colleagues and clients while promoting a culture of accessibility in the workplace.
Our educational programs are tailored to meet the specific needs of organizations, including content, schedule, and delivery method. This ensures that employees have access to the training they need in a format that is convenient for them and that the training aligns with the organization’s goals and objectives. By providing these opportunities, organizations can create a more inclusive workplace and demonstrate a commitment to diversity and accessibility.
