Jacob's Story

Posted by Communications@NABS on 4 April 2013

Jacob Clarke tells the remarkable story of his landmark case for Deaf rights. In high school, Jacob's school felt he did not need an Interpreter and that a note-taking or Buddy system would suffice. He fought for five years for his right to an Interpreter and won, demonstrating why it is essential to have an Interpreter present to help with the education of Deaf high school students.

NABS respects that Deaf people have the right to an interpreter. If you wish to book an interpreter for your next private medical appointment please contact NABS with details of your appointment.
