Not one size fits all regarding communication modes and needs of Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard-of-Hearing persons. RICDHH Interpreter & Captioning Services is familiar with the diverse communication modes (ASL, CDI, PSE, Oral, Tactile) of the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard-of-Hearing consumers and uses its processes to determine which interpreter has the skill to work most effectively with a particular Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing person.  

RICDHH works to fill assignments with qualified and licensed interpreters at either onsite or remote (video remote interpreting) assignments. RICDHH Interpreter & Captioning Referral has an excellent reputation in the community. It has experience providing interpreters in all types of situations. Our ASL Interpreters are certified by the Registry of Interpreters of the Deaf. The RI Department of Health licenses them. Our captioners have passed the certified real-time captioner, registered professional reporter, or certified real-time reporter exams from the National Court Reporters Association. 

Suppose you, as the requestor, are uncertain of the DHH person’s communication mode and needs. In that case, it’s always a best practice to ask the DHH person directly and have them advise you. You can also call our Interpreter Referral Specialist to discuss the communication modes and settings before you submit your service request.
