MT Family ASL

Bilingual support for deaf* children and their families

We use deaf* to include deaf, hard-of-hearing, deafblind, deafened, and deaf/disabled people.


Montana Family ASL supports deaf* children and their families in accessing the information and resources they need to become bilingual ASL/English families with strong ties to local and national deaf communities. We’re based in Montana but we’re thrilled to connect with families and resources wherever they are.

“MTFASL has helped our family so much- we have more confidence about trying to use ASL and more fun!”

English + ASL = Healthy, happy, whole children

The best practice for deaf and hard-of-hearing children is to make sure they have early access and exposure to both languages.
