“Health, computer science and drama classes will partner with the social skills training provided by the school psychologist in order to create resources in the students’ native language, American Sign Language. There is a great need within the community for accessible materials. Our students will create videos to inspire and instruct the community in a variety of social and emotional skills. As the program progresses to next year, a peer mentoring program will be established in order for the older students to gain further experience and understanding of the skills through teaching younger grades, using resources they have helped create.”
