American Sign Language, or ASL, is recognized as an official language for Deaf communities in much of North America.

The American School for the Deaf contributed to the development of the language in the early 1800s in New England. From there, it spread to other schools. Today, people study and learn ASL all across the United States and in some areas of Canada.
