American Sign Language interpretation is in high demand in our society nowadays
A sign language interpreter of high caliber is profiled on this page. She’s just one of many exceptional sign language professionals on our staff.
American Sign Language is the first language of most deaf and hard of hearing North Americans. It is a very popular language in the United States today considering that roughly about 1% of the US population is deaf or hard of hearing. Many states have passed (or are currently passing) laws to recognize ASL as a complete and natural language.
The need for ASL interpreters in this country has steadily increased in recent years. A full time sign language interpreter today makes a decent living because of the high demand. In most school systems nowadays, the deaf and hard of hearing students are being mainstreamed with the rest of the student population.
Job applicants who can sign are more attractive to employers today than they have ever been. Due to the fact that they can serve as interpreters in the workplace if and when they are needed in that capacity.
