Working with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals has its challenges, as the DHOH community has its own unique language and culture. The interpreters who serve our clients are adept in eliminating communication barriers and encouraging a “deaf-friendly” environment, where everyone has a positive experience. They are among the most talented and motivated individuals in the field. Interpreters contracted by ACD meet or exceed professional qualification and/or certification standards.
