American Sign Language (ASL) Services began in 1989 in Central Florida and has been dedicated to providing the highest level of sign language interpreting available. ASL Services has amassed an impressive resume of clients, including Apple, Walt Disney World, Sea World, United Healthcare, Valencia, Orlando Health, the School District of Osceola County, Orange County Public Schools, Seminole County Public Schools, Florida Hospital System, Florida Blue, Rockwell Collins and many more.
ASL Services supports and hosts many local events and conferences to educate and empower the deaf about topics such as deaf rights, disaster preparedness and more. ASL Services also works within the under-serviced deaf/blind populations, providing both services and cutting-edge technology tailored to their needs. During the past year, ASL Service’s initiatives have included providing hurricane relief to employees in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria in 2017 and emergency virtual sign language interpreting for the Red Cross during Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria and deadly fires in California. The organization also collaborated with the Communication Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Sen. Darren Soto, U.S. Rep. Victor Torres and U.S. Rep. John Cortes to pass the Deaf Floridian ID Bill.
