Donna Flanders is Back!!

Happy New Year Everyone! We wanted to kick off the new year right with a two day workshop from Donna Flanders. Friday, January 26, our mini workshop, focuses on the Whats up series. This workshop focuses on commonly misunderstood or misused signs in ASL. It is from 6pm-9pm at the Fresno DHHSC. Saturday, January 27, our all day workshop, focuses on building the necessary skills to turn English words/phrases/concepts into conceptually accurate ASL Images. This workshop will also be at the Fresno DHHSC from 9am-4:30pm.

We look forwarded to seeing you all there!
