Shown far right, Lone Star College-North Harris American Sign Language (ASL) instructor Aaron Delgado shows Bethany Perez, Summer Kids College participant, the sign for mouse as Amy Hall, LSC-North Harris interpreter coordinator for disabilities services observes.

LSC-North Harris' Summer Kids College offered three two-week sessions of summer camps between June and July, which included American Sign Language as one of the more than two dozen distinctive offerings.

Twenty-six year old Delgado, himself deaf, used the voice interpreting services of Hall as he demonstrated to eager campers how to build a vocabulary of ASL signs.  Delgado mentioned that the young campers really enjoyed learning the signs for animals the most.

Delgado's background includes a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from Gallaudet University, the world's only university in which all programs and services are specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students, and a Masters Degree in Deaf Education from Lamar University in Beaumont.
