Deaf Services Coordinator/Sign Language Interpreter
Phone: (413) 585-2139 or (413) 585-2071
Sign Language Requests: Requests for interpreters for meetings and one-on-one communication should be made by or on behalf of a specific deaf individual at least one week in advance whenever possible. Requests for theatrical or other performances should be made at least two weeks in advance to allow time for us to secure interpreters with these skills who are scarce in the Northampton area.
Event planners: If you are planning an event that will be open to the public, please post notice several weeks in advance with instructions about how to request an interpreter and a deadline. You can then notify the Office of Disability Services at least three weeks in advance of the date, sooner if you are planning a large event that might require several interpreters.
