The first school for the Deaf was founded by Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet and Laurent Clerc. Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet wanted to find a way to teach deaf children. His neighbor Mason Gogswell had a deaf daughter, Alice, and Gogswell did not want her locked away in a mental institution, as was common practice during those times. Thomas left the U.S. in search of a way to educate deaf people, in 1816, while in England seeking their method of educating the deaf he attended a deaf-mute show which featured it's star pupil: Laurent Clerc, a brilliant deaf student from France. Gallaudet convinced Clerc to come to the U.S. and help set up a school and hence in 1817 the first school for the Deaf opened in Hartford Connecticut.

Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet's neighbor had a daughter named Alice, who was Deaf and had no language. This was in the early 1800's, at there was no school for the Deaf at this time, nor really any sort of Deaf education. (the solution at that time was to put your deaf child in an institute.) Gallaudet traveled to Europe in to learn how they taught their Deaf, at the few schools they had. He met Laurent Clerc, a French Deaf Educator, and brought him with him to America. Clerc used FSL, French sign language, that was combined with Gallaudet's signs, student signs, home signs, etc, and it evolved into American Sign Language.
