A Sign of Respect: Strategies for Effective Deaf/Hearing Interactions

By Thomas K. Holcomb and Anna Mindess

This series of three interactive programs is designed to help ASL and Deaf Culture students become more comfortable and confident about attending Deaf community events. 

  • The first program is designed for students new to ASL and Deaf Culture. 
  • The second program is geared toward advanced and more experienced ASL students. 
  • The third program is available to support interpreting students as they get ready to graduate and begin their career as professional interpreters.  

When students purchase the program they are automatically added to the instructor's class. The instructor's access is free and provides a dashboard with views of all the students' activities and exercises.
