SSP is called “First Home” by its deaf-mutecommunity members.
Sign Language Interpretation
SSP provides a hassle-free environment for deaf persons, where they can come in as groups and communicate in their own language without the inconvenience of being misinterpreted. Certified sign language staff members at SSP are always present to offer sign language assistance and interpretation to someone with auditory impairments.
Groups of persons with hearing disabilities attend Deaf Conversation Club every Wednesday and Friday at SSP headquarters. Net and free Wi-Fi are also supplied so that the persons can interact with the international deaf community through the web and social media by sharing their thoughts and exchanging ideas on the topic.
SSP in collaboration with the Multan Deaf Association aims of the planning of a dependable place where deaf persons can confidently express their minds, views and feelings in the vernacular sign language. Trainings are given to deaf people to equip them with the basics of community awareness and significance of learning sign language. Through these trainings and consultations, deaf people are encouraged to learn sign language in order to make themselves heard without the act of speaking.
SSP aims to promote consciousness among the general public considering the significance of learning sign language by the deaf and normally able community alike to bridge the gap between the two groups as there’s a severely scarce number of individuals who are able to see and interpret sign language. SSP is taking one stride at a time towards inclusion and accessibility for deaf persons so that efficient communication can be secured without the prospect of the deaf community being misunderstood, misinterpreted or misunderstood.
