STATEN ISLAND CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING TO
OFFER TWO NEW PROGRAMS FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE DEAF/HEARING IMPAIRED
The Staten Island Center for Independent Living, located at 470 Castleton Avenue, will be offering two new programs for individuals who are deaf/hearing impaired and their families.
Using the computer software “Interpretype”, Mike Bradley, Computer Technician, will be offering computer classes to individuals who qualify. The classes will be held free of charge and deaf interpreters will be available during classes, if necessary.
In addition, the Center will be offering an after school program to teach sign language to children who are deaf/hard of hearing, their siblings, parents and caregivers. This will help to promote better communication among family members. These classes will also be held free of charge for families who qualify.
For further information, please contact Lorraine De Santis, Executive Director at 718-720-9016.
