SLI offers a range of communication support services delivered by professionals who work individually for shorter sessions (2 - 3 hours). For longer sessions, please be aware that booking a relief LSP is advisable. With the exception of On-Line interpreting services and Remote Notetaking, all LSPs travel to the venue of the client's choosing. It is adviseable to book LSPs well in advance (at least five days) of the appointment.

These are professionals who will either use the manual, block alphabet or a hands-on method of communication. It is important to state the preference of the deafblind person when booking, so that their needs can most easily be met.
