Sign Language and Oral Interpreters
Professional sign language interpreters at GSU provide services to students who are Deaf and hard-of-hearing. They take voiced English information and interpret it into American Sign Language (ASL) and also interpret ASL to voiced English. Sign language interpreting is conducted in a variety of settings such as academic classes, lectures, meetings with faculty and staff and other university-sponsored events.
Oral Interpreters give a precise rendering of spoken words via lip movements. This service assists those students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing and read lips.
Sign Language and Oral Interpreters also consult with faculty and staff, providing information regarding the role of the educational interpreter in the classroom. GSU professional sign language interpreters stay abreast of current issues and trends related to interpreting and Deafness. Doing so allows them to be utilized as a resource for the University, the surrounding community and the other educational institutions.
