ASL Nook - ASL Nook is an online hub of videos where a Deaf family teaches ASL in a casual, fun way to put people at ease in learning the natural language of the Deaf.
ASL Nook was founded by two Deaf people who come from hearing families. The co-founders established ASL Nook after giving birth to a Deaf and hearing daughter seeing there was a resource gap for teaching new parents with Deaf children ASL where it was engaging to both the parent and child. If you are looking for authentic, real-life ASL then look no further than here.
​ASL Nook is for Deaf children, hearing family members, ASL students, and anyone who’ve said “I’ve always wanted to learn ASL!”

We realize that access to hearing health care can be prohibitively expensive. We help families pay for hearing aids for their child(ren) when other funding sources are not available such as Medicaid or DVR (Division of Vocational Rehabilitation) and family income is limited. In addition, we recognize that hearing aids sometimes are covered by insurance but the deductibles, co-pays are too high.
