ALSO (Alternative Learning Styles and Outlooks)

Deaf Adult Upgrading Program

About the Program

ALSO's Deaf Adult Upgrading Program is for Deaf adults who want to upgrade their English reading and writing, math or computers.


ALSO supports the development of pre-employment and job readiness skills. We offer a high school credit or college preparation class on Thursday afternoons. All classes are one-on-one or small group.


There is free on-site part-time childcare available for children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years.


ASL RAPP is available as a family literacy resource to Deaf or hearing parents with children to support ASL/English language learning at  home.
