The program for adults who are deaf or hard of hearing at LAGCC in Long Island, New York began in 1975 after the school was approached to create a class to help adults acquire their GED. In 1985 classes were added for adults who are deaf or hard of hearing who wanted to take college-level courses. The LAGCC program has been evolving with its student population since its creation. The current program offers a spectrum of opportunities: a developmental math class, courses for the academic degree student, continuing education programs such as GED and ABE (Adult Basic Education), and computer skill classes—all taught using American Sign Language. Offering comprehensive services for both students with high school credentials and without them, LAGCC provides services for every Deaf Adult Learner and incorporates methodologies that target visual learners.
