Sign Language Videotapes:
Reviewers have said the sign language videotapes give you much information in a user-friendly format in as little time as possible and are very reasonably priced.  These tapes are not studio quality, but are of "classroom quality".  Get your videotapes made by the ASL Teacher of the Year 1999-2000 at the University of Florida!

Sign Communication Proficiency Interviews (SCPI)
Do you need to evaluate employees, candidates for interpreter training, or assess the proficiency of ASL students?  Would you like a Sign Communication Proficiency Interview?  On-site interviews and ratings can be arranged.  Two to three day on-site workshops can be given to your staff to improve their skills with deaf clients.  E-mail to for particulars.
