Learning Basic Sign Language

Community Room Combined
Thursday, Nov 17, 6:15pm to 7:45pm

Increase your understanding of body language and Sign Language as a conceptual and visual language. Sign has a wide range of uses: to indicate to a spouse you need to leave a room, to form a bond with a child, to be an effective communicator in customer service, and to communicate with individuals who use sign. We will discuss disability challenges and curiosities. Instructed by Rhiannon Gurley, a hard-of-hearing, inclusion advocate.

Limited space; registration is recommended. Please use the sign up link below or call (608) 246-4547 to register.
