Deaf News: Sign Language interpreter pictured at work with Obama in the Whitehouse

Sign Language interpreter at work in the white house


This picture taken from Facebook shows an American Sign Language interpreter relaying President Obama’s words during a meeting at the Whitehouse. She is interpreting for Claudia Gordon (second from the right) who has recently been appointed as Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement. We wonder if Obama needed to remind the delegates not to talk over eachother.

If it can be done here..
