ASLdeafined was created for everyone, regardless of age, to learn sign language. On this website, lessons are categorized into 3 groups: 1) deaf students, 2) parents with deaf children, and 3) the community at large. By no means is this website only for a particular group or age. Our goal and mission is to present sign language in a format that is easy to learn for all users and subscribers.
At ASLdeafined, we believe the best way to learn a language is by categories, and not just random words. Our goal is for the subscriber to link to previous knowledge and experiences while learning sign language.
ASLdeafined uses American Sign Language, plus signs that are acceptable by the deaf community at large. It is our intent and goal to use American Sign Language throughout this entire website.
Each subscriber has their own personal progress chart that automatically records the score after the completion of every activity.

Most of the sign videos incorporate facial expressions. However, the focus is on learning the sign. Adding the necessary facial expressions will be taught at a later time. Facial expressions are a vital part of American Sign Language and should not be overlooked. Some of the signs do include necessary mouth movements, however, at this time, we tried to limit the mouth movements as much as possible.
