ASL Guided Programs are the first of their kind for Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC), a 501(c)(3) organization in south Florida. These programs began in 2018 and include private tours of the facility, school field trips, night turtle walks, sunrise nest excavations, and internships. 

The goal of these programs is to provide Deaf communities an opportunity to learn about how to become better stewards in marine conservation, using sea turtles as a focal point.

Compound Verbs in ASL

SEPTEMBER 12, 2022 | 8 - 9:30 pm (ET)
Instructor: Hilary Ainbender
Online via Zoom | $25*
*ASDC members save $10

In ASL and English, we often create new signs or words by deriving nouns from verbs. Words and signs are created when two words that are already in use are put together, creating new signs, and new words! This is called compounding. Hilary Ainbender will walk us through compound verbs in ASL, and how you can use them effectively in your conversations.

Great for ALL skill levels and age groups!
