American Sign Language

American Sign Language (ASL) is growing in usage everyday.  Many states have passed laws recognizing ASL as a complete and natural language. Hundreds of colleges and universities throughout America now accept ASL in fulfillment of language entrance and exit requirements.  More and more television stations are using sign language in their programs and advertising.  More and more employers are looking for applicants who can sign. They know that having signers on their staff can contribute toward a good faith showing of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and similar legislation.  A snowball effect is taking place as more and more people learn to use American Sign Language.
