We are so excited to be featured in Sorenson Communication's November newsletter. Please note that there is a full-time interpreter onsite only during the months of June, July, and August. The rest of the year, we work with several interpreters in the area to accommodate requests, so please let us know ahead of time if you're coming to the park and would like services while you're here.

Have you ever wondered how Yosemite Deaf Services got started?

Yosemite Deaf Services had a fantastic time at DeafNation.

"I just wanted to write you a Thank You note. Thank you sooo much for making our trip extra special! We had thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Yosemite. I especially enjoyed learning about the history and the making of Yosemite. Thank you for interpreting for us. Brenda wants to go back! We didn’t have enough time to go see the Big Trees. Will have to make it another trip out to see the outskirts of Yosemite Valley (The wilderness)."

Yosemite Deaf Services will have a booth at the DeafNation World Expo in Las Vegas next week. Come by to say hi, ask questions, or just gaze at the gorgeous posters and photographs I'll have on display. Come tell me what you'd like to see Deaf Services do in the future, and if you've been to Yosemite and used Deaf Services in the past, come tell me how it went.

Yosemite is a naturally Deaf-friendly place. It's the outdoors! You don't need to hear here. You can camp, swim, float, hike, bike, and take in all the scenery without any need for hearing or interpreting. Working here reminded me of this wonderful Clayton Valli poem, "Deaf World," about the natural connection many Deaf people have with the outdoors.

Over the winter, thanks to some amazing teamwork and persistence, we got a Sorenson Video Phone installed in the lobby at Yosemite Lodge.
