Accessible Signs

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.
