SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETING

We provide American Sign Language interpreters to facilitate communications for members of the D/deaf community.  The Americans with Disabilities Act requires public and private entities to consider the needs of people who are D/deaf and hard of hearing by providing effective communication – which may include interpreting services.  The ADA states that it is the responsibility of the business or organization to request and pay for an ASL interpreter – not the individual who is D/deaf or hard of hearing.  Emergency interpreting is available 24 hours a day.  

 

To request an interpreter, call us at (901)278-9307.
