About Us
We here at The Seymour Joseph Institute of American Sign Language (SJI) are committed to the instruction and advancement of American Sign Language to both the hearing and deaf communities. Its goal is to produce graduates that have the skills to communicate accurately and effectively with deaf individuals both within and outside of the deaf community. Our school was founded in loving memory of a deaf man who inspired the love of American Sign Language in a young girl’s heart. May that love be ignited in the hearts of all the students who learn American Sign Language from the institution that bears his name – Seymour Joseph—my father.
