DEAF ACCESS SERVICES
Sign Language Interpretation Service
Sign language interpretation is a core service run by DAS for our Deaf clients who depend on sign language to access information and help with communication.
We have six staff interpreters, of whom five are hearing and one is a Deaf interpreter. They are able to interpret in Singapore Sign Language (SgSL), Pidgin Sign Language (PSL), Signing Exact English (SEE), or a combination of the above.
SADeaf offers a note-taking service which was launched in May 2014.
We have a pool of note-takers to draw from, and who are deployed mostly to clients studying in institutes of higher learning such as ITEs, polytechnics and universities. Note-takers are carefully matched to clients based on their skill-sets and background.
