Bilingual / Bicultural Program
The Bilingual / Bicultural Program track at Alberta School for the Deaf provides students with maximum opportunity to acquire and develop language and literacy skills in both American Sign Language (ASL) and English, in a culturally and academically enriched environment. Our programming is aligned with mandated Alberta Education curriculum requirements to best meet individual language and learning needs. Both ASL and English languages are used for instruction, assessment and demonstrations of student learning.
Classes consists of American Sign Language and English language models with embedded expertise and support from a collaborative team made up of a Teacher, Educational Assistant, Educational Interpreter, Speech and Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Audiologist and/or an Aboriginal Liaison Worker, as required.
