Celebrate American Sign Language Day with the Greenleaf Family Center

Celebrate American Sign Language Day with the Greenleaf Family Center In-Person

Join us to celebrate American Sign Language Day by learning some ASL basics with the Greenleaf Family Center.  

We will discuss Deaf culture including what is appropriate and what isn’t. Also, we will talk about using polite words to refer to a Deaf or hard of hearing person. We will discuss what it means to be Deaf or deaf. Why do we use a big D or a little d?

What do I do if I meet a Deaf person? How do I act? Where do I Look? What if there is an interpreter?

We will learn the alphabet in ASL and how to spell our names. In addition, we will learn how to say “hello” and “good-bye”, “please”, “thank you” and “you’re welcome”. We will also learn some library-related words such as help, library, book, computer and more.

There will be candy rewards (let us know of any allergies please).
