ASL Weekend
Gift Registrations
Give the gift of communication!
More than 90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents, most of whom have no prior experience with ASL. At ASDC, our goal is to ensure that every family gets the support they need to learn ASL. Now you can give an ASL Weekend workshop as a gift to a family you love.
ASDC Jewish Group
Parent-to-Parent Support
"At the ASDC conference last summer a few Jewish parents - myself included - found each other. I live in MD, and the other family I spoke with lives in Philadelphia. We thought that it would be really wonderful if we can begin getting together for different events. Of course we can all decide what we want this new endeavor to look like. I hope that you will respond to this message so that we can begin. I look forward to connecting with you! Email me at"
