I love the direction SLIAO is moving in. Continuous collaborative efforts with Deaf community organizations result in accomplishing common goals and strengthen the well being of the community as a whole. Bravo!!!
I had an excellent experience with SLIAO. They provided me with plenty of varied opportunities to gain experience and confidence in becoming an ASL-English interpreter. The staff was helpful and supportive at all times.
I love having a Deaf manager that can show me different ways of signing a concept whenever I need it.
I love how supportive the SLIAO team is and how much SLIAO values professional development. (The snacks are great too!)
You provide the interpreters a very welcoming and safe space to work. You always take into account our needs and wants. You also treat us as individuals and not just a worker with number. I can't tell you enough what a pleasure it is to be on board and to be working for the BEST company ever.
