- FAQs - 


Who is Hands On ASL!?

Hands On ASL! runs ASL classes and retreats for the queer and trans communities in the GTA.  Hands On ASL! is a proud supporter of the Ontario Rainbow Alliance of the Deaf (ORAD). 

Hey, why do the dates shown on my confirmation email differ from the dates I select in my registration? 

Eventbrite seems to be a bit funny that way.  We can't show you specific dates for each course on the outset but as you register, you will see a breakdown of all levels and course dates.  Be sure to select the level and dates you want when you register. You will also get a confirmation email with the details, including the start and end dates with times.  Just look for your level, and the dates and times will be listed next to it.  We will also be sending you a reminder email prior to the course start date with all the information you'll need.  


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Contact us at Hands On ASL! anytime via 


Can I update my registration information?

Absolutely! You can use the link in your confirmation email to update your information anytime!


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No need.  We will have everything electronically accessible and we will be there personally to check you in at the first class.  


What is the refund policy?

There are no refunds after the registration period has ended.  A deferral may be granted, at the coordinator's discretion, should you need to withdraw for emergency reasons.  However, you must inform the coordinator before the third class. 


The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Totally.  Also, let us know your preferred name for us to use in class.  We will need this for our attendance sheets for the instructors. 


Is there a workbook offered with this course?  

We use the Vista Signing Naturally Curriculum as a guide to teach our courses and add specific material to the course content to cater to our queer & trans* classes.  Due to lack of resources (people not returning workbooks out on loan), we will no longer have copies of student workbooks we can loan.  We do have some copies left for purchase.  We are working on making more resources accessible to you as you pursue your ASL studies. You may also choose to purchase your own copy of the Signing Naturally Student Workbook for your level, but check in with your instructor to see if you will be using it often!
