Today is International Day of Sign Languages!

The American Society for Deaf Children (ASDC) is excited to team up with Caesars Games for an online celebration of the UN's International Day of Sign Languages on September 23.

WHY SIGN LANGUAGE? Currently, in the US, more than 90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents. Without sign language, parents don't have a way to meaningfully communicate or bond with their deaf child. Without sign language, deaf children can experience language deprivation and social isolation, limiting their potential for a lifetime. Your donation will change that outcome.

WHY DONATE?  By sponsoring a family today, you give parents the opportunity to become fluent in American Sign Language. You will help them find Deaf mentors and learn Deaf culture so their child can feel a sense of belonging within the Deaf community. By giving the gift of sign language, you are giving a deaf child a lifetime of meaningful connection with the people they love most - their family.
