To keep your sign language skills sharp, it is important to interact as much as possible with the Deaf Community. One way is to attend various events that support ASL. Some of these events may occur near your home.
Here is a brief explanation about ASL Expo:
“The ASL EXPO, short for American Sign Language Exposition, is the premier trade show for the sign language community where suppliers, distributors, organizations for the deaf, deaf-blind and hard of hearing, interpreting services, and many more exhibit sign language related products, services, and technologies to a vast audience in a fun-filled atmosphere. ASL EXPO welcomes everyone, including the deaf, deaf-blind, hard of hearing, those with a hearing loss, people with disabilities, interpreters, families of deaf children, and sign language students and beginners.” (from www.aslexpo.com)
ASL Expo will be visiting numerous cities in the next couple of months. Listed below are some of their stops.
Look around in your community for unique opportunities to be involved in the Deaf Community.
