Deaf Events and ASL Meetups

Signing Group Chatting

Here you will find all of the public and private Start ASL events and practice sessions we offer as well as other public Deaf events we find.

For public Deaf events not affiliated with Start ASL, we try our best to find accurate events for you to attend and include them on our calendar. Some events are free, while other events require tickets or an entrance fee. We are not responsible for cancelled events. Contact information is provided as available for each event.

There are no upcoming events.

Find Other Signers

Social ASL is our brand new social site for signers to “connect through sign” and find love, find friends, or find both! Whether you are Deaf, hard of hearing, late deafened, use a hearing aid or cochlear implant, are a professional ASL interpreter, working in Deaf education, or even a hearing person still learning ASL - all ASL users are welcome at Social ASL to meet and connect with fellow signers.

Are you learning American Sign Language on your own? Finding an ASL partner with whom to practice your signing skills is an integral part of learning this language. And since ASL is a visual language, face-to-face practice time is crucial to your success. As they say, practice makes perfect!

  1. I’m a student who believe diversity, equality and inclusivity. In my tech program, my group wants understand sign language learners’ experience and their challenges revolving around the disconnection existing within the d/Deaf and adjacent related communities and among their loved ones. In addition, we hope to spread awareness and make a difference. If you have a chance please check out our survey!

  2. Hello: I’m Allen. I am late onset deaf at age 70 and now 77. I use hearing aids, but my hearing is fading. I have a tutor once per week. When I watch the ASL phrases they are often too fast and I need to slow them to 0.5 speed. Also the video tests in the final exam with numbers then a word are very difficult for me. It would be useful to review the needed vocabulary prior to some of the tests and there are an enormous number of signs to remember. Also distinghishing M from N is actual signing is challenging because of th qucikness of the signer. Allen

  3. Hi there everyone! My name is Joshua and I am Hearing; pronouns he/him; gay/queer.

    I live in the Gettysburg area and I wanted to introduce myself as friend of the community and tell you all that for those who are into the spiritual aspect of things, meaning tarot, Wicca, magic, oracle etc, I offer services for those that are into that sort of thing! I am fluent enough in ASL to hold conservations with people but in no means a licensed interpreter. If you or anyone you know who would like a tarot card reading, this is my page/group: The Magician’s Menagerie and Tarot and Tea Time With Joshii Naderi. Prices will be answered in a separate DM. I am available to meet within an hour drive for in person readings and can also FaceTime/video chat if need be.

    I hope everyone is going to have a safe and wonderful holiday! I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.
