Connecticut’s Old State House Legislative Landmarks: The American School for the Deaf

Nov 30, 2020 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In 1816, the Connecticut General Assembly of Connecticut chartered the first permanent school for the deaf in the U.S., incorporated under the name, “The Connecticut Asylum for the Education and Instruction of Deaf and Dumb Persons.” This marked a turning point in the way society related to people with disabilities, and in the way they viewed special education.

Today, the school is known as the American School for the Deaf (ASD). The ASD celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2017.

Join panelists from ASD: Executive Director Jeffrey Bravin, and Museum Coordinator Jean Linderman, for a discussion regarding ASD’s foundation, history, growth, and progress.
