The Interpreter acts as a vital communicative liaison between the Deaf and non-deaf individuals in the Advocates community. The Interpreter’s primary role is to interpret in American Sign Language between those using specialized ASL and/or those with language deprivation and requiring further communication assistance. Responsibilities also include translating written information and recording into accessible ASL for the Advocates Community. The Interpreter reports to the Communication Access Director and will work throughout the agency as needed.
