How can I get my Lab Attendance Summary?
What kind of events are we involved in?
Austin has one of largest Deaf communities in the United States. Our ACC students happen to be fortunate to have their campus merely three miles from Texas School for the Deaf where often there are Deaf events happening in our close-knit community. We support students in attending to either observe and support Deaf events or immerse by doing volunteer work with a vast array of organizations on a range of events, from sports games to formal receptions.
Why should I get involved with Deaf events?
Immersion and Networking! Networking is perhaps the most crucial tool you can utilize to find job opportunities. To be competent in ASL at a certain level, it requires immersion in Deaf culture and an ASL environment. This cannot be acquired only through the classroom environment. Mastering a language requires using language with native speakers. Just as learners of Spanish go to Mexico to gain exposure and knowledge to the language and culture. So learners of ASL need to be immersed in the culture and language of Deaf people. This requires attending Deaf events to immerse yourself in the language and the culture, which is part of developing ASL competency. Austin provides numerous opportunities for students to gain this exposure and students are encouraged to participate in as many Deaf events as possible. Prospective employers and clients not only want to see that you comprehend the language, but that you have demonstrated how you can handle working in a fast-paced, high-stress environment.

ASL Practice Review
Through ASLIT program, I have made life long friendships not only through classmates, but also in the lab. The lab makes learning significantly easier and much more fun. Although useful as a study atmosphere, the lab is pleasantly engaging. When possible, I liked playing a game or having casual conversations with the tutors. My experience in the ASLIT was one of the best experiences in my life. When anyone is seemingly interested in learning ASL I recommend Austin Community College’s ASLIT program, even if they are not interested in becoming an Interpreter.
