Welcome to Houston Deaf Network!

It’s time, friends and foes! A time to rise up, unite resources, build support, educate and especially be “heard” by those who live in Houston. Although Houston is the 4th largest city in the US, we have yet to see a central hub where Houstonians can find a variety of useful information in one place.

Accessible Signs

Filed in: Interpreter Services

Hospitals and courtrooms are scary enough as it is; imagine the challenges faced by someone who is deaf. While it is necessary and legally mandated for the deaf to have the provision of an interpreter, it can be a daunting task to properly accommodate these needs. Many people are unaware of all that is entailed in meeting ADA requirements. For example, it is unethical and unacceptable to expect a family member to serve as interpreter because he or she must remain objective and may not be qualified to give sufficient representation. All of our interpreters are certified and have undergone specialized training so that they can fulfill their role with discretion, professionalism, and confidentiality.
