Episode #42 Serving the deaf community: How to comply with ADA regulations effectively and ethically
You may understand the need to have wheelchair access under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the need to make the font larger for the visually impaired. But, when it comes to serving the deaf community, many of us are unprepared. Many assume that since they do not know sign language, they cannot serve the deaf community. But this couldn’t be farther from the truth under the ADA requirement. Learn how to be compliant and what the process is like to obtain an interpreter.

Learning Objectives

  1. Name the requirements to serve the deaf community under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  2. Define video relay and interpreter as it relates to the deaf community.
  3. Explain specific cultural characteristics among the deaf community
  4. Name specific adjustments to the therapeutic process that clinicians must anticipate
