American Sign Language (ASL) is primarily used by Deaf people within the United States. It is, however, the fourth most used language in the United States. It is becoming popular as more hearing people learn about the language and choose to become more involved in the language and the deaf culture, as well.
Advocacy programs and services offered by DCN are available to all Deaf/Hard of Hearing individuals, families of Deaf/ Hard of Hearing individuals, and individuals with speech impairments. Our main goals focus on a person centered approach to educating our clients in their legal rights as well as teaching skills to live happy, independent, and active lives.
AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE CLASSES

DCN has developed a wide-range of information and referral services for public and private agencies, businesses, higher education programs, statewide and regional services.

Deaf Centers of Nevada's (DCN) Youth and Family Advocates care very much for the lives of Deaf, Hard of Hearing children and those with speech/language difficulties. We aim to assist youth from childhood to their transition into adulthood. Through different activities provided by our Youth & Family Advocate and Deaf Mentor, as well as our partnerships with early intervention programs, we provide advocacy, education, tutoring, and support to our community’s families. We ensure no child is left without daily development tools and communication.
