Did you know that there is an online resource available for families who want to learn American Sign Language (ASL)? Through a partnership between the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM) and the Signing Time Foundation, Sign It! is free for families who have a child who is deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) and is three or younger.
Sign It! is an innovative online curriculum for learning ASL. Instruction is done by professional actors (both deaf and hearing) who are fluent in ASL and is highly interactive, entertaining, and engaging. You can complete the lessons at your own pace. Built-in quizzes provide feedback about how well you are learning the material, and there is ample opportunity for practice. You’ll see video vignettes showing conversational ASL, interviews with deaf celebrities, and instruction about ASL grammar and Deaf culture.
