Presenter Profile
Amanda Dockweiler holds an A.A. in Interpreter Training (ASL) and a B.A. in Art. She is a certified teacher in the state of Texas and has taught at the high school level since 1997, currently instructing both American Sign Language and Visual Art. She also holds Texas state certification as an ASL Interpreter for the Deaf and is actively involved in the Deaf community.

Prior experience includes several years at a residential school for the Deaf where Amanda worked in the nursery with infants and toddlers (both hearing and deaf), all of whom used ASL to communicate.

Additionally, Amanda has had extensive experience in a variety of settings for over 20 years using ASL as a successful communication tool for sign-supported-speech with individuals of all ages who have special needs and limited verbal ability.

Class Formats
Simply Sign instruction is offered in the following formats:

1) Weekly classes.

The Level 1 course consists of classes that meet 45 minutes per week for six weeks. Songs, stories, & nursery rhymes will be used to help you learn the vocabulary, and relevant aspects of ASL grammar are introduced to further enhance communication and second-language learning. You are welcome to bring your child to these classes.

The Level 2 course is an additional six weeks of classes available after completion of Level 1 so you can further your ability to sign with your baby! Multi-sign sentences are also introduced for use with older children.


2) Three-hour workshops.

These workshops cover the content of three classes in a single session, offering more convenience for busy families.


3) Private family lessons.

This is a great option if you would like siblings, grandparents, and other caregivers to reinforce your efforts to use sign language with your little one, bringing consistency to your baby's life. Lesson content can be customized to meet your needs (a great option if you already have knowledge of the ASL basics and would like to take it further).

Cost is per one-hour session and up to 5 people over the age of 5 are welcome. There is an additional fee for additional family members.


4) Host your own!

If you know others who are interested in taking Simply Sign classes as well, the fee for a three-hour session (class or workshop) for one parent will be waived for you if you can coordinate a class yourself and confirm at least four other participants.


5) NEW!! Beginning American Sign Language Class

Begin learning the beautiful, visual-spatial language of ASL in this introductory course. Curriculum will be similar to that covered in the ASL I foreign language course taught at Shelton. The focus is on practical, conversational vocabulary. Participants will learn correct ASL grammar and aspects of Deaf culture, as well.


6) Free overview presentations/demonstrations are available if a group of 8 attendees can be confirmed. Presentations are approximately 45 minutes.


7) Know someone having a baby? Simply Sign classes make a great shower gift! They are perfect for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas, and other occasions, too!


Additionally, I am completely open to other options. If you have unique needs, please contact me to make arrangements.

Prices are subject to change.
Travel fee may apply.
