  2. Create a bridge between existing ASL communities (Gallaudet and ASLTA) and ACTFL.  Outreach to develop relations between ACTFL and ASL communities.
  3. Advocate for the development of standards for ASL teachers.
  4. Provide more research resources and educational opportunities that will help improve the standards of ASL teaching and language acquisition.

I am signing this form in support of forming an ACTFL Special Interest Group (SIG) on the topic of American Sign Language.

Completing the form does not commit you to joining the SIG if it is formed.
