ASL Resources:

Those are ASL resources that you can use as study guides and/or to acquire knowledge about ASL, cultural information, and other deaf-related materials during the full school year. *Please keep in mind that any languages including American Sign Language is ALWAYS growing and changing over time. Any resources in regard to any language is NOT the “perfect” tool for learning since it is very challenging for any resources to keep up with today’s information. Also, you may see variation of signs due to regional dialects. When in doubt, ask the teacher first.*
