Those with dyslexia often have great difficulty with learning a foreign language. So, what are the foreign language requirements all about and what is required to graduate and what do colleges accept or not? And where does ASL fit in and why is it thought of as being helpful to our students with dyslexia?
We’ll cover the foreign language requirements at the very beginning of the meeting and then we’ll get in-depth about ASL. Join us!
ODN meetings are open to everyone — parents, educators and kids. We invite you to join us.
When: November 18, 6:30 p.m.
Where: Heritage Elementary School in the cafeteria
I was just wondering if any progress has been made in ASL being offered as a foreign language in the high schools. After this meeting, I never heard anything else about it. Any info is appreciated.
Olentangy is offering it online. So is Hilliard, that we know of locally, but not sure about others.
My youngest daughter would benefit from the ASL course(s) tremendously. She already has a strong interest in learning the language so I am curious to know has anything been done to implement the course(s) being offered within the district.
The last opportunity we had to enroll was during 2017 Summer Enrichment – Grade School level which ended up being cancelled due to low enrollment. My daughter will now be attending middle school and I would like to know if this will be an option for her in the near future. Any information will be greatly appreciated!
Olentangy did try it as a summer option for a few years. Please contact them as they will know for certain any details surrounding it and what options might exist for your child in this regard.
