Press release from: Interpreters Unlimited, Inc.

ACD will provide sign language services support for Deaf and HOH persons in upcoming Council meetings

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 19, 2017—The Florida Department of Education Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) has selected Accessible Communication for the Deaf, an IU Group Company, to deliver American Sign Language interpreting services during its upcoming quarterly meetings in Fort Lauderdale. The VR is a federal and state funded program, dedicated to aiding Floridians with disabilities find and maintain employment. This marks the second consecutive year the contract was awarded to ACD.

ACD will play an integral role in the meetings, scheduled for November 6-8, interpreting the Florida Rehabilitation Council’s recommendations to the VR. In addition to advocacy and other areas of concern, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation meeting will provide a forum for any community members to express their opinions. ACD is proud to help Deaf and Hard-of Hearing persons obtain equal access to these vital government services.

The Florida Rehabilitation Council is comprised of multiple state rehabilitation councils and is a strategic partner of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. The Council’s primary goal is to create job opportunities for people with mental and physical disabilities and advocate the employment rights of individuals by voting on each recommendation or suggestion that is presented to the VR.

Services provided by the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation include but are not limited to medical and psychological assessments, career counseling, job placement, training and education services and assistive technology and devices.

Use of ASL interpretation services will be administered via ACD’s contracted interpreters who hold national certification from the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf and other state-approved credentials (when applicable). Sign language interpreters who administer ASL to English interpretation are required to have advanced fluency beyond being bilingual.
