  • Physical and emotional dynamics of the setting
  • Avoidance of repetitive stress injuries (RSI's) for interpreters

Its The Law

Communication access is a civil right for all! Providing Sign Language interpreters ensures communication access to people who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. As mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) www.ada.gov, it is required that all agencies and places of public accommodations provide professional Sign Languages interpreters upon request. The ADA is a comprehensive anti-discriminatory law that extends to society and most aspects of daily living. Title III Section 36.303 requires places of public accommodations to be accessible to, and usable by, people with disabilities.
