For work, citizenship, college & life: It’s up to you!
Our main goal is to ensure you have access to language and communication wherever you go, whether that is through an ASL interpreter or communicating through texts, emails, or captions.
While attending classes at ThinkSelf you can improve your vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension skills – in ASL and English.
Adult Diploma & GED
To earn a GED, you must pass four tests: Language Arts; Math, Social Studies, and Science. ThinkSelf can help you prepare for the tests through instruction and practice, and support you in finding appropriate accommodations at the testing center.
Adult Diploma Program
Tests in written English can be very difficult. The Adult Diploma Program allows learners to use prior experience and achievements to fulfill various completion options for a high school diploma, instead of taking the GED or other High School Equivalency exam.
Learners will show competency in five areas: English Language Arts; Mathematics; Science; Social Studies; and Employability, Career Awareness, and Digital Literacy. Competency can be demonstrated through past credits earned, coursework, certificates, and/or exams.
Tutoring and Resume-Building
College is challenging, but you deserve support that helps you achieve your goals and succeed. Accessible tutoring and support for college students are available through in-person and video instruction. All instructors and tutors are fluent in ASL, allowing for direct communication, without the need of an interpreter.

ThinkSelf staff can work with you to better understand the language specifically used at your jobsite, and provide instruction to improve your skills in order to get that raise or promotion you’re going for!
