What Is OklaASLTA?
OklaASLTA is a professional organization for ASL and Deaf Studies
teachers in Oklahoma. OklaASLTA invites these teachers to join our
organization. OklaASLTA is the Oklahoma chapter of a national
organization, the American Sign Language Teachers Association, or
ASLTA. ASLTA works to provide opportunities for ASL and Deaf Studies
teachers to exchange information on language and culture,
instructional methods, materials and evaluation techniques.

On Saturday, November 9, 2002, we will present a workshop on national
certification for ASL teachers. Leslie Greer, president of the
national organization, ASLTA, is our speaker. OklaASLTA will give ASL
and Deaf Studies teachers opportunities to professionalize their
knowledge and skills through local and national workshops and
conferences. Members can also maintain and update evaluation and
certification standards and techniques for teaching ASL.

ASLTA has developed and maintains a national resource directory on
ASL and Deaf Studies teachers to be used as a reference source for
colleges, universities, high schools, and local/state agencies. ASLTA
also assists chapters in efforts to attain state recognition of ASL
as a language, and ASLTA-granted certification of
teachers of ASL and Deaf Culture.
