Reviewed July 2023

If the program does not give you a free interpreter, complain:

  1. Ask to speak to a supervisor. If the supervisor doesn’t give you an interpreter,
  2. Write down:
    • the supervisor’s name,
    • the name of the program, and
    • the date.
  3. Report it to the Language Access Coalition:

The Language Access Coalition will investigate.
