Welcome to Storytelling & Learning with ASDC!

This ASL Stories Directory makes it easy for you to find hundreds of free videos of ASL retellings of your child’s or student’s favorite books. Research shows that reading and signing stories together helps promote essential literacy skills for ALL children: deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing. Use the ASL Stories Directory to quickly find stories by age or by the book’s title. Make the most of signing and reading with your child! Get useful tips here.


Check this page often! We add signed stories & learning resources to the directory each week.  If you have a favorite video that’s not listed here, or if you want to add your own video of you and your child signing one of your favorite books, please share it with Cheri at cheri@deafchildren.org. Thank you.

Thankfulness is the quickest path to joy. – Jefferson Bethke

We all have different ways of sharing our thanks and gratitude, especially as we enter the holiday season.

May the good things of life be yours in abundance, not just this week but today and always. Thank you for choosing us to help you find solutions and resources for your family, especially for your deaf child/student.

On behalf of all of us at ASDC, we appreciate you deeply. Thank you for being part of our mission. Happy Holidays.
