Community Education

DAS provides education about Deaf and Hard of Hearing to the Western New York community through:

  • Sign Language classes
  • Outreach presentations
  • Deaf Community workshops

to enhance Self-Awareness in the Deaf Community and to increase knowledge of the Deaf Culture.  

DAS offers ongoing day and evening classes to teach American Sign Language to the community as well as to Deaf Refugees and their families.  In the summer, DAS even offers Baby Sign Language classes at various locations within the Greater Buffalo area. 

Our continuous effort to create Community Awareness about Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities is accomplished through presentations to:

  • Civic clubs
  • Neighborhood and Professional Associations
  • Businesses
  • Churches and Schools
  • Health Fairs
