Program Details:

Deaf Anglo Literacy Center offers literacy courses in English, mathematics, computer skills, and life skills for deaf and deaf blind. Because they can help to succeed at work, in personal life and in the community, these skills are very useful in the everyday lives of Deaf people. All courses and workshops are given in American Sign Language (ASL) by Deaf instructors in order that the participants can better understand course material. Unlike traditional schools, the instructing in the center is more flexible and adapted to the needs of deaf participants. Similarly, training and educational materials are created and adapted for deaf literacy learners. Participants attending classes feel less lonely and more socially involved. They are encouraged to take part in DALC’s activities, workshops and meetings. As a result, participants have more self confidence and self-esteem.
