I'm not sure, but I hope so. I got this information via e-mail from a friend who is a graduate student in the Department of Education at Gallaudet. If you can, forward a link to this post (or direct link to their site) to deaf schools and programs nationwide. This isn't the only workshop offered by Clerc Center (there are other workshops offered such as literacy, visual phonics, group/play therapy and so on).
