INTERPRETING SERVICES 

El Paso SLI American Sign Language  Interpreters are used to assist in bridging the communication between the hearing and the Deaf or Hard of Hearing community. This communication can be virtual, in person, as a group, or in a one on one setting. All of our sign language interpreters are highly qualified or hold a national or state certification. The interpreter will interpret the English or Spanish spoken language into American Sign Language also known as ASL. El Paso SLI provides interpreters in a variety of settings. We have interpreters that are both bilingual and trilingual to interpret your communication needs.
