Deaf History Month / National ASL Day

This month, we honor those who are members of the Deaf community! Did you know that April 15th is also National American Sign Language (ASL) Day? ASL is considered to be the backbone of the Deaf community. It allows people who are Deaf or hard of hearing to communicate their opinions, beliefs, and values. It can also enhance their cognitive, academic, social, and emotional development, which supports them in maximizing their potential and leading full lives.

Here at Las Trampas, we believe in inclusion for all! We are committed to providing resources and promoting communication access for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), including those who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Let’s continue to work towards a more inclusive world where everyone is capable of connecting and communicating!
