Teach American Sign Language to your Business or Agency

SLSI offers Sign Language classes to businesses and agencies that hire individuals who are deaf.  This training has resulted in increased inner-office communication, staff satisfaction, and upward mobility for Deaf employees.

Custom course instruction is designed to be provided on-site, and is targeted toward the day-to-day communication needs of the business or agency. The goal is to increase communication between employees who are deaf and their co-workers and supervisors.

Class Length and Description

Classes are 15 hours in length, normally provided in one hour sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, or 1.5 hour sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Classes have been found to be most effective in the morning, and lasting for 5 weeks. The maximum class size is 14 individuals.

After one class, participants are able to engage in rudimentary social interchanges with colleagues who are deaf. After the second class, basic conversations can occur. After the third class, participants are ready to engage their colleagues in simple conversations and acquire further Sign Language ability through regular interaction.

A DVD-based, self-paced introductory course is available through Ready, Set, Sign!
