A: The focus of this work was to develop K-12 ASL Content Standards. Meanwhile, many schools and programs serving deaf and hard of hearing students have been collaborating in developing and sharing ASL activities, materials, and resources. It is our hope that there will be an increased interest in this collaborative effort after the Standards are disseminated.
The Clerc Center will be hosting a series of discussion forums with experts in the field to answer questions and moderate discussions about the Standards. Information collected from these sessions, along with a national survey from the Clerc Center to learn more about different uses of the Standards, will help determine next steps.
