Culturally Sensitive Conduct Learning
American Sign Language (ASL) is a visually-based language, and as such you will be asked to focus on visual communication and written at all times. Most workshop participants may not be aware that talking during a workshop or class may be considered insensitive to others. By using our voice, we may be excluding our instructor or making it more difficult for the others to focus and develop their skills. This is why after a very brief "spoken power point" we ask that absolutely no voice be used. It is understandable that it will take some time for anyone new to the workshop and the concept of Deaf culture to abstain from using their voice in class. You may be challenged beyond what you are used to. Give it a try! You will grow tremendously and develop a whole new set of skills. Not to mention meet others!
