Event Date/Time: 

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018
2:00 PM EDT - 3:30 PM EDT



Communication is a critical element when interacting with medical professionals and providers whether it is in the doctor or dentist office or in a hospital setting. Often individuals who are deaf are denied effective communication based on a lack of understanding of the requirements or a concern about the cost of providing necessary services. Technology has expanded the options available for communicating with individuals who are deaf but it is not a situation of “one size fits all” and there are many variables that can go into whether or not one method of providing access to a sign language interpreter is more effective than another. Join this session for a discussion of these issues and to learn more about the resources that are available to assist an entity meet their effective communication obligations.
