The third part of "Ten Top Tips of ASL Development" by Alicia McLurklan covers Tip #3: Similar Sign Shapes.


This workshop is great for any of the following:

  • ASL educators & students
  • Students of interpreting & certified interpreters
  • Parents of Deaf children
  • Educational interpreters
  • Educators of Deaf students & Deaf students

Signs of Development offers you professional development opportunities to meet your continuing education needs and career goals. Signs of Development is an approved sponsor for RID CEUs (Continuing Education Units), and we have a number of ways that interpreters and educators can earn their CEUs with RID or their state licensing agency. We have existing relationships with most states and ASLTA, who accept CEUs granted by our WWWorkshops without any additional verification required. Please contact us for more information at wwworkshops@signs-of-development.org.

Alicia McClurkan is a Certified Deaf Interpreter and native ASL user. She is from Texas and specializes in mentoring. She provides many strategies, tools, and techniques for signing, transliterating, and interpreting.

Does this qualify for CEUs? Yes! Like all of our WWWorkshops, it is RID-approved as Professional Studies and also meets the requirements for state certification maintenance programs.

How many CEUs can I earn? This WWWorkshop is valued at 0.4 CEUs (4 hours).

How do I apply for CEUs? As you view the workshop, you will answer questions and interact with the material. Your responses are saved automatically. When you are finished, you will receive an email certificate within 30 days, and we will register your CEUs with RID or your state agency (if you need your certificate or CEUs more quickly, we also offer emergency processing).

Do I need to email or fax any paperwork? No, there is nothing to fax or email! This new completely web-based format completely eliminates paperwork.
