The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) went into effect in 1990. For over 25 years, the ADA has been clear about communication rights for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
By complying with the ADA, you’re doing your part to fight discrimination, and follow the law.
To put it simply, interpreting is not an easy task mentally or physically. Our industry has studied quality of interpretation in terms of length of appointment as well as frequency of provider injury. Teaming protects you and your provider on longer appointments and shorter appointments where the content or the language used by the participants is unique or complex.
Until the Deaf community is as overwhelmingly in favor of video interpreting over in person interpreting, we recommend using in-person services. Technology issues, lack of familiarity with the content, and other issues make video interpreting an option of last resort. Rose only uses video in emergencies.
A Deaf Interpreter is a provider of ASL interpreting services who is deaf. They are experts in the art and science of ASL-English interpreting and provide deeper and more culturally accurate interpretations than what an experienced hearing interpreter can usually do alone. We work with them in high stakes situations and when the ASL used requires native fluency.
