Student-Created ASL Manual for Starbucks Employees


Senior Owen Hodson recently created an ASL manual for Starbucks employees as an extra credit assignment for Mrs. Jones's ASL III class. He created the guide to help the staff better communicate with the Deaf community at a variety of Deaf social events. Every 3rd Saturday of the month, Mrs. Jones hosts a Deaf event at the Starbucks, allowing workers to interact with the Deaf community. Many Brandon Hall students have also attended the event, allowing them to learn more about the Deaf community while honing their ASL skills.
