Understanding what's wrong with your child and how your child will be treated are important if you are to be a partner in your child's care.
To make sure any communication barriers are addressed, we offer American Sign Language (ASL) services as well as interpreters for many languages. We can best help you if we know ahead of time that it would help you to have a language intepreter during your child's appointment.
