This Conference Board of Canada (http://www.conferenceboard.ca) case study focuses on the Winnipeg Division of Boeing Canada Technology. Boeing employs 24 deaf workers in its Winnipeg plant and has developed two workplace education programs specifically geared to the needs of this group: the Reading Workplace Documents for Deaf Learners program and the Math for Deaf Learners program. These programs both use American Sign Language to communicate with learners. This case study looks at various aspects of these two programs, including their objectives, target groups, activities, resources, barriers, solutions, and use as a model.
