Deaf Awareness Training
Deaf individuals can experience obstacles when communicating with staff who may not be aware of the access needs of the Deaf community. DNEC is providing an hour-long workshop and a nine-week ASL class. These classes will help you understand Deaf culture, history, language deprivation, social deprivation, mental-health issues, and basic communication, and will help you develop strategies for staff to improve their interactions with Deaf consumers. These classes can be customized to suit your agencies' needs. The awareness workshop can be taken separately, or along with the ASL class. For more information, contact us.

ASL classes run throughout the year. We hold virtual classes, classes in our office and classes in the community. Contact us for more information. You can also register and pay for the classes using the link.
