To enlighten individuals, families, educators and business’s on the importance of learning American Sign Language (ASL) to become more inclusive and accessible.
Who Are We
Founded in 2018 as an extension to My Smart Hands London which came to be in 2004, ASL Breaking Barriers is an advanced, current and thriving American Sign Language corporation based in London, Ontario. Our clients consist of individuals, to seniors to business’s (both small and large).
Being accessible today is a vital part of any business with inclusivity awareness being more predominant than ever before. We are committed to assisting you in being known as a leader who supports accessibility and inclusivity. With years of experience in signing, involvement in the Deaf community compiled with having Deaf instructors it’s fair to say we are knowledgeable about sign language services!
Our mission is to enlighten individuals, families, educators and business’s on the importance of learning American Sign Language (ASL) . Using ASL as a means of communication can bridge communication gaps thereby assisting in inclusivity, offering accessibility and a better understanding of the Deaf community.
What We Do
ASL is not only beneficial for communicating with the Deaf community but for most anyone who does not have a voice. We are passionate about offering a means of communication (through full ASL or ASL words) to those with, APHASIA, AUTISM CEREBRAL PALSY, and/or DOWN SYNDROME.
We also provide services to individuals, seniors, educators, medics, schools and more.
If you know someone ,or are an individual, that would like to learn to communicate through signs but feel that full ASL isn’t a viable option for you (IE seniors homes), we have excellent options for you! Please contact us about learning the basics to bridge your communication gap.
ASL Breaking Barriers was born out of a love for teaching American Sign Language (ASL) signs as means of communication with preverbal babies since My Smart Hands London was developed in 2008.
This grew into working with those with Special Needs, Seniors, doing Education Assistant Workshops for the Thames Valley School Board as well as Medic Workshops. In these formats we used solely ASL signs as opposed to full ASL.
Now offering ASL instruction to adults, children, families, your workplace and more, is the next natural step to being accessible to those wishing to communicate through sign.
