ASL Credit Course – Request for Feedback

Deaf and Hard of Hearing students across the province have expressed interest in taking an ASL for credit course. POPDHH is planning to roll out two online 4 credit courses, ASL Level 1 and 2.

  • ASL Level 1 (which is equivalent to the objectives in Intro to ASL 11)
  • ASL Level 2 (which is equivalent to the objectives in ASL 11)

We are collecting information from TDHHs to pilot the new ASL Level 1 course and we will prioritize registration for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students from grade 8 – 12. ASL Level 1 is for beginner learners and has no prerequisites*. Please fill out this short survey by Feb 26th, so we can tailor our course to students interested in taking ASL Level 1. Thank you for your time!

What has POPDHH been up to?

Feb 3rd – 5th – TDHH Mentorship Group Meeting – Lucky thirteen of our 2020-2022 Cohort met online to talk about Advocacy and PLCs. Workshops and presentations included Standard of  Practice for Educational Interpreters, Visual Language with John, and Program Delivery and Case Study Examples by PDHHS. The participants also had the pleasure of hearing from a student panel. After hard work during the day, the group enjoyed a virtual game night. The next big Mentorship meeting will be held virtually in the last week of May.

Feb 10th – Countdown to Kindergarten – Parents and designated service providers of DHH preschoolers across the province joined Tamara online to learn about educational options and transition to Kindergarten. If you missed it and have questions, contact Tamara for details.
