Did You Know?

  • A Deaf person has the right to request a Sign Language (ASL) interpreter so that there is effective communication. ¬†And really, it makes sense. You want your customer/client/patient/employee to understand you and the services that you are providing. This helps you provide the same excellent service to all of your customers/clients/patients/employees.
  • A Deaf person who feels that a Sign Language (ASL) interpreter is needed for effective communication has to request that the service provider provide an interpreter for effective communication. Most businesses do not have staff interpreters, so contact a local interpreting agency like AAA Interpreting Service, for help scheduling an interpreter.
