Stakeholder Engagement

 

This page is to serve as a central location for ODHH's stakeholders. We will regularly post information. We are currently working on a Legislative proposal to address the concern of Washington State's sign language interpreter shortage.

ODHH plan: ask our Legislators in 2026 for a special work group to be formed for this purpose.

We invite your participation in future meetings.
Next meeting is postponed until further notice.

Washington State Legislature Picture-in-Picture ASL Interpretation Service -   Website Link   

The House and Senate, in collaboration with TVW, are piloting picture-in-picture American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation for select committee hearings during the 2024 Legislative Session. This project has raised some important questions, so we’ve created a FAQ page to help answer those. We will add to this list as new questions arise.

Please email questions, comments, and ASL pilot reviews to ASLPIP@leg.wa.gov
