Since the passing of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, private, state and local government entities are under obligation to consider accessibility to goods and services from individuals with disabilities. In most cases working with individuals who use sign language as their primary mode of communication or any number of diversified disabilities is a new and occasional experience. Considerations for accessibility are difficult to anticipate.
As a benefit of working with ASL Communication,
we have organized some helpful resources that will enable your organization to consider appropriate policy, procedures and compliance to the ADA Law.Most of what you need to know about the ADA and how it affects your organization can be found online. However, wading through cyberspace and maneuvering through the subtleties of Deaf culture may lead you to inapplicable information. Here ASL Communication
provides you a highlighted list of links and resources to enhance your organization's sensitivity and education of the ADA's intentions. If you find you need even more information, feel free to and we will consult with you on your accessibility issues.
