Sign language club to host children's workshop

Northwest's American Sign Language Club will host a children's sign language workshop from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, Feb. 7, in the J.W. Jones Student Union Boardroom. Cost is $7 per child. Proceeds are used to support ASL Club trips and activities.

The workshop will include stations where children can learn signs describing family, colors, emotions, names, food, songs, animals and the alphabet.

Northwest's American Sign Language Club's purpose is to promote awareness of ASL and deaf culture. It is open to any University student who has an interest in ASL and related issues.

The group meets once or twice a month and occasionally travels to schools and conferences. Past trips have included visits to the Missouri School for the Deaf in Fulton and the Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing conference.
