Effective July 15, the Dept. of Rehabilitative Services (CT-DORS) will close the Interpreting Service program. This is designed to save critical state dollars without reducing services – interpreter services will still be available through private companies.
If you are in need of interpreting services, please call 2-1-1 or go to http://www.211ct.org/ and search for “Sign Language Interpretation”.
DORS will continue to monitor and post a statewide Interpreter Registry. All sign language interpreters working for compensation in Connecticut must satisfy the mandates of established law CT General Statute Sec. 46a-33a, including annual registration with DORS and submission of documented credentials, including certification by a nationally recognized board.
