Sign Language

Do you want to learn how to sign? You’re in the right place. Enrolling in sign language classes and meeting people who use American Sign Language is a good way to learn and practice.

This page lists ASL classes and events statewide, online courses, sign language organizations, and additional resources.  On this website, we also feature Silent Suppers and Deaf Community Events as other opportunities for you to help you develop ASL fluency.
