American Sign Language (ASL) is the third most widely used language in the U.S., after English and Spanish, and a form of ASL has been used in the U.S. for over two hundred years. If you are interested in adult sign language classes in NYC, regardless if you have a hearing impairment or not, then speech therapist, Stacey Miller, SLP is here to help you better communicate with your child and/or loved one.
Many people with hearing impairments communicate by using ASL, which combines hand signs, gestures, and facial expressions to create words and sentences. As many as 500,000 people in the U.S. communicate using ASL. If you wish to begin or further your knowledge of ASL, then our adult sign language classes in NYC are for you. Adults may experience speech and language difficulties for a variety of reasons. This weekly sign language course teaches adults how to use sign language to communicate. Using ASL to communicate with your child, a friend, loved one, or colleague will greatly enrich your life, as well as those you are communicating with. We offer weekly beginner to advanced classes with Stacey Miller, a skilled speech therapist who has over seven years of experience in treating speech and learning disabilities as well as extensive experience with sensory integration. Stacey’s goal is to work with each child and family as individuals and create a realistic and functional communication plan for each child and family, based on their concerns and daily needs.
