Metro Deaf School has two ASL Specialists working to support students in K – 12. MDS’ ASL department works with teachers to support student’s ASL needs as it relates to each student’s IEP. Students have instruction in understanding the linguistics of American Sign Language, while others may have remediation services if deemed necessary. Deaf Studies is also part of the ASL department. Deaf Studies is taught as a course to the JHS and HS students and woven into the curriculum for K-5. For more information about MDS’ ASL department please contact the school’s Director .Check out this video to see why early exposure to language in ASL for our Deaf children is so important!
