Did you know that BC Family Hearing Resource Centre has a number of opportunities available to learn American Sign Language (ASL)?  Whether your family is pursuing ASL as a first language for your child, a second language as part of a bilingual approach to language development, or learning signs to support your child’s spoken language development, there are a number of opportunities available to you.

Individual services:

BC Family Hearing Resource Centre has a number of Sign Language Consultants on staff who have a wealth of experience teaching ASL to parents of young Deaf and hard-of-hearing children.  Our consultants not only come alongside parents in their journey to learn sign language, but they also serve as positive Deaf role models/mentors for children.  For our Vancouver Island families, we contract out local Sign Language Consultants through the Island Deaf and Hard of Hearing Centre.  All of our instructors are available to meet with families on a 1-to-1 basis, and the frequency of these sessions can vary from family to family.

Group classes:
