Why ASL IS a foreign language!

Categories: Articles, ASL, Featured, and Louise Sattler.
The times they are a changing! Back in the day when I started taking American Sign Language (ASL) classes at the University of Delaware it was considered a non-required course. But, I LOVED it, so I made room in my schedule for not one, not two but three sign language classes. Fast forward... if I were a student at that same university today I would receive foreign language credit for the ASL classes AND more than likely could have had ASL as my foreign language requirement in HIGH SCHOOL!


I started my career as a School Psychologist working at the amazing Delaware School for the Deaf (aka Sterck). Fast forward, I have spent my career focused on matters of education, especially special education. In addition to School Psychology I have worked as a sign language interpreter and instructor, radio host, educational consultant and now a marketing media specialist.
