Sign Language Services
American Sign Language is used to communicate with people who are deaf or hard of hearing. It involves signing words with your hands so that the person can see what you are saying. An American Sign Language interpreter is one of the many services that can be provided to a person or child who is deaf or hard of hearing.
If there is a child with an IEP plan in place that requires a sign language interpreter, places like LiNKS Sign Language and Interpreting Services can be of assistance. They are a full service provider of interpreting services to individual clients, organizations, and departmental agencies of city, county, and state governments, as well as hundreds of other private, non-profit, and corporations. They provide services in the following areas: American Sign Language, Language interpreting services, Medical interpreters, Tactile interpreting, and Trilingual services (Spanish, American Sign Language, and English).
