Reviews

Not only does Jill understand how to teach ASL, but she also explains why it's important and helpful for anyone with articulation and communication difficulties (not just for the Deaf community). I would highly recommend Jill's workshop.
Debbie Lowsky, MS, CCC-SLP

Jill's method gives you a better understanding of the language and also helps you have a visual when recalling the signs. I found this method very effective for learning essential sign language quickly.
Natalie Owens, MSOT, OTR/L

Jill's workshop was engaging and informative, and I highly recommend it for professionals in pediatric settings.
Leah Ziegler, MSP, CCC-SLP
