Endorsement in ASL

The courses offered for the American Sign Language (ASL) K-12 Educator Endorsement are designed to provide teachers of American Sign Language in the K-12 setting the opportunity to complete the additional courses required by the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) for ASL Endorsement. The courses are offered fully online (in bold) with some courses also offered traditionally. We aspire to prepare students and current educators who embrace diversity, respect, equity, and equality of opportunity within ASL communities.
