Additional information:
No AP test has been developed for ASL. If you want to change this, remember that AP tests are actually a product sold by the College Board! Remember the principle of "supply and demand" applies here. So demand the AP ASL test by contacting College Board at their company headquarters! And have your parents do the same!
ASL Students also have the opportunity to join the National ASL Honor Society.
