Declare Your Interest Here!
The Louisiana School for the Deaf is beginning to collect information to contact families throughout the state that are interested in their deaf or hard of hearing child attending a FREE summer program in American Sign Language (ASL) and English. Official enrollment forms will be sent upon contact.

This program typically takes place in June for approximately 3-4 weeks; students staying in the dorms arrive on the first Sunday. The school is located in Baton Rouge, LA, and students are eligible to stay in the dorms for free if they live beyond a 25 mile radius from the school. The program is subject to COVID restrictions in place at the time of the program.

Who can attend:
 ANY deaf or hard of hearing child living in Louisiana between the ages of 3-22. Students above 18 must be enrolled in a K-12 setting.

Administrators and teachers: Please share this form with the families you serve, so that they may be able to indicate their interest. When we all support our students' language development, they get to reap the benefits, and we get to see their growth at home and at school!

DEADLINE: Please submit all information for all interested students by April 3rd, 2023. Spots for the program, lodging, and transportation are ALL first come, first serve and there is limited availability, so apply ASAP! All interested families will be contacted on a rolling basis depending on space. The sooner you apply, the better. Official enrollment forms will be sent at a later date -- for now, help us gather the information we need to be able to host you!
