Harvest Carnival for Deaf Community

October 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Kids ASL

William Jessup University’s American Sign Language Program Hosts

ROCKLIN, Calif. – William Jessup University’s American Sign Language Program will host a Harvest Carnival on Sunday, Oct. 7 for all children learning or wanting to learn sign language with their families.

The event, from 2-4 p.m. in the University’s large warehouse, encourages children to dress in appropriate Halloween costumes and features fun activities, including carnival games, prizes, face painting, crafts and ASL performances of songs and children’s stories.
More than 200 people are expected to participate and 40 William Jessup ASL students will work the event.

“It is a wonderful experience for our students to be able to educate children about sign language and teach them the signs for colors, pictures and some of their favorite stories,” said lead faculty member Bobbi Long. “This also gives our students an opportunity to practice the signing skills they are learning in class.”

Through generous anonymous donation event funds raised from ASL Day last April, the entire event is free for all families.

According to the Hearing Health Foundation, one in five Americans have hearing loss in at least one ear and three out of every 1,000 children are born deaf.

Long has been teaching ASL for over 24 years and began William Jessup’s program four years ago with just 17 students. The University has approximately 60 students this semester.

“One of the benefits of studying ASL and Deaf Culture is that most people will meet a deaf person at some point in their life,” Long said. “Following the completion of just one course in sign language, participants should be able to communicate with them at a basic level.”
