ASLdeafined is here to help you by answering some recent questions from our users. We would like to share our responses to the most recent questions.
Is it true that ASLdeafined has lessons plans for all of their lessons?
Yes. This is true. If you are a teacher and have a teacher account, you will have access to all of the lesson plans. The link to these plans are found right above the vocabulary words in each lesson. However, if you are not a teacher, and would like to have access to these plans, we can grant you teacher access. No problem.
Do you provide lesson plans for homeschool learners?
Yes. We do have lesson plans for homeschools as well. If you need to have access to these plans, just let us know. And we will add them on to your account.
Rumor has it that ASLdeafined offers a SUBSTANTIAL discounts to schools. Is this true?
Yes. Absolutely! Our goal at ASLdeafined is to make sure students have access to quality ASL from native users. And, students should have access 24/7, 365 and not just during the school day. We also grant discounts to any person that is associated with education (college, private school, homeschool…).
Was ASLdeafined created to “Replace” the classroom teacher?
HECK NO! We need more ASL teachers. ASLdeafined will NEVER replace the classroom teacher, but simply here to assist. We are a GREAT partner for any classroom. Again, we are here to help in any way we can with ASL instruction. We offer the BEST online ASL video textbook. Our lessons were created to make it easier for students to learn ASL, and easier to teach it.
