Community

ASL Services is not simply a sign language interpreting agency; the core of ASL Services proves historically that they are important to the Deaf community on many levels. In addition to sign language classes for the community for families, friends, coworkers, ASL Services established specialty programs designed to meet the needs of individuals from Latin American countries. The ASL Services website www.aslservices.com has been designed as a tool for the Deaf community to get involved in organizations, work related activities and events according to their interests. Additionally, there are constant updates with regard to interests for both the Deaf/Hard of Hearing and sign language interpreters of all levels. ASL Services has also aided in efforts such as developing the spoken Spanish, English and ASL interpreting services, documenting regional Spanish sign language in countries that did not have this opportunity yet and opening the communication access for families of the Spanish language communities. This led to the establishment of its sister company, ASLS Latino, the first for profit agency in Puerto Rico, fostering economic advancement, opportunity, and collaboration to the benefit of the commonwealth and stateside Puerto Rican Deaf residents.

The Future

Currently, ASL Services has entered into a partnership with Video Relay Services to provide support in English VRS and establish new ground and opportunity with Spanish speaking ASL Video Interpreters. The Deaf and Hard of Hearing community will continue to expand their horizons and thrive, and ASL Services is determined to continue producing the best array of communication options to help make that possible.
