A commitment to our community is an essential aspect of our School.  By sponsoring various events, hosting community oriented activities and donating time to assist other non-profits, we look to expand our collaborations with other local businesses and organizations.

The Scranton School for Deaf & Hard of Hearing Children is proud to continue offering American Sign Language (ASL) I, II, and III courses at our South Abington Township campus and in Wilkes Barre.

  • ASL I – students will develop basic finger spelling, vocabulary and grammar skills.
  • ASL II – students will continue to work on skills learned in ASL 1, while progressing into conversation skills.
  • ASL III – This class will provide an evaluation of each student’s communication skills, and focus on individual needs.  Attention to advanced grammar and signs will be emphasized and will include dialogues that involve asking, empathizing, negotiation, agreeing and disagreeing.Each class will learn about deaf culture and learn new ways to interact with deaf and hard of hearing individuals and their respective communities.
