The bottom right picture shows a smiling young lady holding a little boy.   The ASL immersion was excellent. It gave the family the challenge we needed. We have taken ASL classes together before but the kids were bored and the pace was too slow. Being around ASL all day really helps to learn, not just taking one hour a week. The staff was great and fun, that also makes this program wonderful. Thanks SO MUCH!!!!”              ~A parent experiencing the ASL Immersion program The Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind (CSDB), Outreach Programs, offers programs and services for students, ages 3 – 21 years old, who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and attend public, charter, private or online schools.  Services are also provided for parents and staff from school districts or Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES).    

American Sign Language (ASL) Immersion for families is an opportunity for family members to experience Deaf Culture through activity based language experiences.  Participants will leave with a more complete understanding of Deaf Culture and an improved ability to communicate ASL.

American Sign Language (ASL) Immersion for professionals is a intensive learning opportunity. Professionals become a part of Deaf Culture by immersing in the language and the community of the Deaf.
