Classes & CEU Workshops

American Sign Language

We are pleased to offer a range of American Sign Language (ASL) classes to students of all ages, including adults and children, who want to learn this important and interesting language. Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels of instruction are available. Classes are conducted in ASL and taught by hearing and Deaf instructors. To provide personal attention, class sizes are limited to a small group of maximum 15 students. Private lessons (all levels) are also available.

This is a 10-week evening program. (Summer program is 7-weeks.) Each weekly class is 1½ hours. Classes are held at our Waltham, MA office which is easily accessible by Route 128 or the MBTA bus.

Individual and discounted group rates available. We also offer private tutorial services and on-site instruction for health care facilities and industry.

Learning sign language is fun and easy! Here are a few signs to get started.
