ASL Presents provides coaching services, including one-on-one sessions, working with individuals and rehearsing texts towards satisfaction. This service is currently designed for two groups: presenters and actors.
For presenters who may be presenting during small or large meetings, conventions or large audiences, classes, and other groups, ASL Presents’ coaching services can work with you to accomplish effective presentations in ASL by:
- Structuring the information to flow throughout the presentation
- Reviewing ASL grammar for utmost clarity
- Selecting the most appropriate register for the presentation, including style and signing pace, use of eye contact, and intimacy level with audiences
- Integrating media such as notes, teleprompters or LCD projectors as prompts
The goal is to provide a presentation that is clear, outlines points well, and is interactive, leading to the audience’s enjoyment and positive learning experience.
For actors given a particular character, coaching services assist in identifying the character’s signing style and pace, taking into consideration the character’s the age, personality, gender, ASL fluency, and sign choices.
ASL Presents' coaching services also assist actors individually in translating their English lines into ASL.
With our expertise and coaching, actors will become more believable and authentic for ASL-fluent audiences.
