It is our 1 year anniversary! In order to celebrate, we have three (THREE!) announcements!
ASL version first:
Now, in English with pictures:
We finally have VRS set up in our office! This means, not only, that we can communicate directly with all of our board members and the Deaf artists that make this work possible, but that we can receive calls from the Deaf community, as well.
Our VP # is 503-894-5057
Because we have the VP set up in the room we also are now able to proctor the American Sign Language Proficiency Exam (ASLPI) in partnership with Gallaudet University. New Oregon Teachers of the Deaf (as well as many others who work with the Deaf community) are required to show proof of ASL skills with certain scores on either the ASLPI or the Sign Language Proficiency Interview (through NTID). Both assessments can be taken at the office, and we would love to discuss scheduling with you if you'd like to take the test in Portland.
Click on the test below for more information, and then either contact us
