The Interpreting Services Department employs full-time American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters skilled in working with DeafBlind people at our Seattle facility. In addition to our in-house interpreting staff and schedulers, the Lighthouse uses the services of freelance ASL interpreters to meet the needs of DeafBlind employees. All interpreters provided are qualified with specialized knowledge and experience in interpreting with DeafBlind people, and adhere to the Code of Professional Conduct (code of ethics) with the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID).
