For those who want to attend in person, please come scent free. We will offer healthy refreshments for a healthy mindset. We are offering the workshop series in ASL (American Sign Language).

For people who prefer a different set of accommodations, we will either offer spoken English translation or live transcribing.

If you are unable to attend, do not worry – the event will be live-streamed via ORAD’s Facebook.

Also, we will be having an additional workshop for those who want to learn how to film informative sign language videos – you will need to apply for that as we will be selecting up to ten individuals to participate. So please look out for that vlog soon! Even though the workshops are free, we strongly encourage you to donate to ORAD so we can continue to provide you with all the cool free programming.
