The Interpreting Services Department at The Learning Center for the Deaf provides American Sign Language interpreting in a variety of settings, including educational, medical and therapeutic environments. Our Deaf interpreters have extensive training in utilizing their native knowledge of ASL for assessment and specialized situations. These assignments require nuanced translations that contain cultural, visual, tactile and linguistic elements. We also provide information regarding the Deaf Community, how to work with interpreters, and how to make communication more accessible. Our team of schedulers coordinate, schedule, and support interpreters in an effort to maintain the smooth operation of the entire department.
