HASA has taught American Sign Language (ASL) using the highly successful and well-respected method, Signing Naturally, since 1988. Signing Naturally is a non-verbal approach taught at many institutions across the country, including Gallaudet University. To encourage students to think in signs, students and instructors avoid using speech in the classroom. Interpersonal communication (not simply learning signs for English words) is emphasized. Students focus on functions of specific everyday interactions that range from inviting someone to sit down to more abstract communication, such as giving directions or problem solving. Grammar is learned in the context of these communications. An additional benefit of this approach is the development of a cross-cultural awareness of the Deaf community.
