A Chat with American Sign Language Class
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Deaf Focus is a community agency specializing in working with individuals who are Deaf, Deafblind, and hard of hearing. One of our goals is to improve community awareness and spread Deaf culture, such as learning ASL.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? This one time, two-hour course is taught by an expert in her field. The instructor brings a new approach to learning ASL, one that will have a lasting effect. You are sure to walk away from the class feeling like you have grasped major concepts and learned many new signs.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Deaf Services was established in 2009 to fill the gaps in services for the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and hard of hearing community in the Greater Baton Rouge area.
What do you love most about your job? I love working for an agency that recognizes the importance of others being aware of different cultures so they can learn about and be exposed to the diversity within their community.
