We are pulling together a focus group to gather input from individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, their friends, family and individuals who are interested in improving access for the deaf and hard of hearing population. (This includes adults who have or are losing hearing as part of the aging process.)

June 10, 2019, 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Community Center in River Heights
3960 S. Globe Theatre Ave.
Boise, ID 83716
Two sign language interpreters are scheduled

The purpose of the focus group will be to take a deeper dive into issues of accessibility in Barber Valley effecting access to the deaf and hard of hearing community and areas to improve access including technology, business services, Shakespeare festival, HOAs, future developments, you name it.

What makes Barber Valley great, and how do you experience these amenities?
How can we make it better?

Please RSVP to me personally or to [email protected]
Also, please share widely!
New beginning level ASL class starting next Tuesday, April 16th from 7-8pm!! Message me for more info!
I would love information on how to get in touch with you. I have tried a few different times.

As some of you know, I have been working on a very special project for several years now. During my years of teaching I have often been contacted by loved ones, caregivers and educators of individuals with Autism and other developmental disabilities. They notice communication difficulties and look for other ways to connect. Teaching sign language to those who struggle to communicate verbally can have life-changing effects.

The needs of these folks are different than those of the Deaf/hh. They are looking for key words to enhance expression visually, but do not need the full language of ASL. Due to this, it has been my goal to create a course specifically to meet their needs, and I am so excited to announce that it is finally available to the public!

If you or anyone you know struggles to communicate verbally due to Autism, Down syndrome, ADHD, non-verbalism or any other special challenge, please share the link to our website.
Girl Scouts is refusing to provide an interpreter for events that my daughter is registered for in Boise. Any suggestions?

Photos from ASL Expressions's post 11/15/2020

‼️SHOUT OUT‼️ to Moe Joe’s Eatery in Meridian (Mountain View HS area). When we walked in, I was VERY surprised to see all the servers and hostess wearing clear masks!! As a hard of hearing person, I cannot begin to express what a gift this is to us. Not only do they allow us to read lips and facial cues, they also allow everyone to see the friendly welcoming expressions of the staff! Our waitress was Tricia, if anyone knows her, please tag her in the comments, she was attentive, joyful and all around fantastic!! The food was delicious, the restaurant was clean and the service was quick! They also sell the awesome clear masks they were wearing for $6 each!!

***Are there other businesses in the Treasure Valley that have implemented ways to be inclusive of the Deaf/hh community? If so, I want to hear from you!! I’ll come check you out too and give you a shout out as well!

***Are you a business in the Treasure Valley that wants inclusitivity training so that you can turn your business into a place where Deaf/hh community members feel valued and included? PM me!

THANK YOU Moe Joe’s, we will be back SOON!!!! β™₯️

OPC Movies

I LOVE hearing of local businesses making their services and entertainment more accessible to the Deaf/hh community!!

Happy Sunday! We are excited to announce that we will be showing Open Caption films on the first Wednesday of every month! Our three 7pm shows that day will all be Open Caption for anyone to enjoy.

Recently it has come to our attention that the members of the deaf and hard of hearing communities in the Treasure Valley, as well as other community members who prefer Open Caption, do not have many options for seeing Open Caption films locally at cinemas. We hope that this will help create more opportunities for families and individuals to enjoy feature films!

We will start this program on Wed, February 5th. If you have any questions, feel free to comment or send a message to us!
