The Resource Center provides free ASL classes which are held on the campus of MSD. Classes are open to any Missouri resident, but families of deaf or hard of hearing children and teachers with deaf or hard of hearing students receive first priority. Professionals serving or desiring to serve deaf clients receive second priority. Others are welcome to attend as space permits.



ASL Classes at MSD

Classes are held in the Stark Elementary School building on the MSD campus. Regular sessions run seven weeks, and the summer intensive class runs four weeks. Classes are taught by experienced Deaf instructors and divided into beginning, intermediate, and advanced ability groups.  To register or request more information about our classes, contact the Resource Center online or call 573-592-2543.

Online ASL Course

If you are interested in learning sign language, the Resource Center staff strongly encourage you to take a class in person because there is no substitute for live instruction from a native signer. However, we recognize that not everyone can attend classes. The Described and Captioned Media Program offers a free videocourse online or by DVD.
