The ADA and Your Business

Providing necessary communication facilitators for deaf individuals is a standard regulatory requirement in the United States.  The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 requires interpretation services for the deaf and hard of hearing in the medical settings (like hospitals, doctors' offices, etc.) legal settings (including courtrooms, lawyers' offices, etc.), as well as in places of employment and in interactions with law enforcement.  Even when it's not required by the law, deaf interpreter services are still a worthwhile investment; it can better connect communities with diverse needs. We can offer you an expert, on-site ASL interpreter on-demand.  We also provide a full range of ASL interpretation services in a variety of settings, including but not limited to:

Meetings
Conferences
Lectures and talks
Courtroom hearings
Medical appointments
Classrooms
