With the support of ASSU, Students for Barrier-Free Access will be hosting introductory ASL (American Sign Language) classes for Winter/Spring 2019, taught by Tamyka Bullen! (Teacher Bio to come)
  • Are you excited to learn a new language?
  • Do you want to increase your ability to communicate with members of your community, family, school program or friend groups who use ASL?
  • Do you want to learn about Deaf culture and Deaf History?
This class is for you!Access information:
Class will be held in a classroom on campus that is wheelchair accessible, with gender neutral, single stall accessible washrooms on the same floor as the classroom. Light snacks (including vegan and gluten free) will be provided.

Once you are registered for the class, you will receive detailed information about the location and any other specific access information.

Classes will run weekly every Friday (except during reading week), starting on  February 15 and ending on April 12, 2019 from 7pm-8pm. If you know that you would have to miss 3 or more classes, please consider being added to the priority list for the next round of classes instead, allowing the limited spaces to be filled efficiently and the opportunity to get the most out of your introductory ASL class.

Classes are FREE and open to all students, staff, and faculty and UofT community members! Priority will be given to folks who identify as Black, Indigenous and/or People of Colour, Disabled, Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Mad folks – Please feel free to self identify when you email to register.

Space is limited to 12 students – if you are interested, email uoftsba@gmail.com to put yourself on the list!

BONUS: Interested in volunteering to help with set up and cleanup for the class? SBA staff needs one volunteer who can arrive to class each week at 6:30 to help set up, and stay to help clean up until 8:30 at the latest. This volunteer will be provided with TTC tokens to and from class as compensation.
