“Understanding ASL Number Systems”
Presented by MJ Bienvenu
This weekend will give you a chance to improve your American Sign Language skills, focusing specifically on various Number Systems found in ASL. Students of sign language and ITP programs, interpreters, parents of Deaf or hard of hearing children, special education teachers, and anyone interested in the field of sign language and interpreting will have the chance to improve their skills in a relaxing retreat environment. MJ’s workshops, as well as interaction with other participants throughout the weekend, will give you plenty of opportunities to improve your receptive and signing skills. Through exposure, participants will also gain a deeper understanding of Deaf Culture. The Weekend will be conducted without voice, and participants will communicate solely through sign language, facial expression, and body language.
