ASL Presents provides presentations in ASL, mainly on topics relating to ASL, Deaf Culture and Deafhood. The presentations are designed for two audience types:

  1. Those who are fluent in American Sign Language, such as Deaf people, sign language interpreters, non-Deaf adults with Deaf parents, or ASL students.
  2. Those who are not fluent in ASL.

Presentations to those who are not fluent in ASL will require ASL-English interpreting services. If both audience types should come to a presentation, the use of an FM system is strongly encouraged. With this approach, an interpreter speaks into a designated microphone that emits messages to those wearing the audio devices; only those with the devices can hear the interpreter. This is advantageous in that it allows non-Deaf people fluent in ASL to absorb the presentation visually without auditory interference.

To do these presentations, ASL Presents requests:

  • An appropriate facility providing optimal visibility of the presentation, such as a platform or riser above the audience. However, the ideal set-up is in a lecture-type, circular setting, where the audience rises above the presenter. This tends to provide maximum viewing comfort for the audience.

  • Plentiful lighting, so that people’s eyesight won’t be strained.

  • A LCD projector for PowerPoint presentations.

  • A small table for notes and handouts.
