American Sign Language (ASL) Classes

CSDB offers ASL classes for community members on our campus in Colorado Springs.  Fall classes are full.  New classes start in the winter of 2020. Registration will begin in December of 2019.  If registration is full, and you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please contact Mary Cuccaro at 719-578-2270.  Constant Contact is used to distribute current information about ASL classes and upcoming events.

American Sign Language (ASL) Professional Immersion

The ASL Professional Immersion events are designed for professionals who work with students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing in school settings.  Participants will become part of Deaf Culture by immersing themselves in the language and the community of the Deaf.  Participants will leave with a more complete understanding of Deaf Culture and an improved ability to communicate in ASL.
