What does ASLAN stand for?

I am not sure what ASLAN stands for but I do know ASL stands for Amercian Sign Language.

I ran across another blogger who got discriminated by his company in his blog here: Update Discrimination at Work

ASLAN needed to be added to ADA for those who are truly rely on ASL as their main source of communication. He wants to see ASLAN to be included in the "ADA law or policy for workforce stating that it shall provided interpreter for all ASLAN and not oppress them."

What does ASLAN really mean? This basically means is to encourage companies and employers to recognize American Sign Language as the main communication by the Deaf culture (Deaf employee) as part of the "reasonable accomandation" effort when conducting meetings and not leaving them out.

I still can't believe that companies have to be encouraged to do what's right.

*thinks about Enron, Exxon, and Haliburton*

Never mind...
