Outreach Services at Rochester School for the Deaf (RSD) enhance learning opportunities for people in our community, including deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals, and Deaf culture and American Sign Language (ASL) learners. RSD focuses Outreach Services toward making many of the unique learning experiences that RSD provides available beyond our school campus. RSD Outreach Services also shares itsí expertise and knowledge of best practices in the education of deaf and hard of hearing children, the culture of the Deaf community, and applied learning in ASL with deaf, hard of hearing and hearing students, their families and professionals within the RSD service area.

Signs for All (SFA) provides American Sign Language classes and Sign Language Proficiency Interview (SLPI) evaluations for anyone, regardless if they are hearing, deaf or hard of hearing. SFA can be very beneficial to members of the community at-large who are eager to learn sign language, including employers and companies with staff who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, as well as professionals who work with individuals who are deaf and hard-of-hearing. Our SLPI evaluations are scheduled to occur once monthly and an appointment can be arranged by contacting RSD Outreach Services. All are welcome to take SFA classes at RSD.
