The CSD Learns team consists of intersectional deaf and hard of hearing educators, curriculum developers, and role models who all have navigated school classrooms as deaf and hard of hearing students.
CSD Learns offers free courses in ASL for you to take! Our courses, hosted on our new Learning Management Software, currently focus on financial education. Learn how to budget, set up your own business, invest, and more – a critical part of establishing a secure future for yourself.

“I have a student who wanted to be an astronaut for many months. Then he told me his mom told him Deaf people can’t go to space. I told him this wasn’t true, but he still seemed unconvinced. Now [because of CSD Learns] he has seen a real Deaf person who works for NASA.”
Our Role Models
Our team recognizes the importance of role models for young deaf and hard of hearing learners. Research shows that role models increase learning motivation when applied to a given field. We’ve taken this to heart, by working with deaf and hard of hearing adult role models in professional careers to create videos showcasing their life experience, the barriers they face, and journeys into their career – all laid out for your learners to absorb.
