Seeking American Sign Language Class (Preferably)

Or American Sign Language Teacher

For bright and very interested 16 y/o dd.

She would prefer to join a class within the deaf community

so that she can learn well and make connections.

Her first language is English and she speaks a fluent Ivrit as well.

She attends high school so evening hours are best.

Thank you for thinking about it!

It may be that learning Israeli sign language would be more useful in Israel than American. Here's a page of resources that includes emails to inquire about courses in ISL and links to additional organizations. http://www.dpii.org/resources.html

From that page: "American Sign Language is not uncommon in Israel, used both by immigrants who learned ASL prior to arriving and by native Israelis who have learned ASL as a second language. While some Deaf Israelis may know a few signs or have a working knowledge of ASL, few speak it fluently."

thank you Ima and saddle,
that was so nice of you to post a resource.

She is Bh not struggling with hearing loss,
but is interested in working with this population.
She is specifically seeking American sign
because she hopes to work in Chai Lifeline in the States
when she's 18.
