CSD Faculty Elected to FASLTA Board

The Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders is excited to announce two of our faculty members have been elected to the board of the Florida American Sign Language Teacher's Associations (FASLTA). Rachelle Settambrino (picture 2nd from left), full-time instructor for Interpreting and Deaf studies, will be spearheading the organization as President in the coming years. Ben Jarashow (3rd from left), full-time instructor for Deaf Studies, will be supporting Rachelle as Vice-President.

FASLTA's mission is to promote the use of American Sign Language as a second/foreign language, encourage respect for Deaf people, their community and their unique culture, organize and share information among teachers of American Sign Language, and encourage ASL teachers to pursue ASLTA certification.
