Why Hire A Sign Language Interpreter?

Equal access is critical for Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Late-Deafened individuals to be productive members of their community and fully participate in society.  By providing interpreters in accordance with the ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act), you can ensure that Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Late-Deafened people will benefit from all of the services that your organization or business offers.  American Sign Language is a rich, complex language with its own grammar structure and cultural context.  It is not equivalent to spoken English, therefore requires translation.
