Important Notice

Thank you for your interest in the Sign Language Proficiency Interview (SLPI).  After careful consideration of our staff’s limited time and mission to serve individuals who are deaf within the state of Alabama, we are not able to accept out-of-state candidates at this time.  A list of site coordinators and their locations is included below. We wish you the best in your endeavors.

Effective February 2020 the Sign Language Proficiency Interview: American Sign Language (SLPI: ASL) has undergone new requirements which have made the SLPI: ASL a more rigorous assessment. Our team is finding that the results are 1 to 1.5 full levels lower than previous results. Previous scores cannot be compared to current assessment results.

General SLPI Interview

This is for the general public.  DO NOT use this form if you are a Troy ITP major University of Montevallo Deaf Education major.

Sign Language Proficiency Interview: ASL

Many different programs in Alabama use scores from the Sign Language Proficiency Interview (SLPI: ASL) as part of the hiring process.  This is especially true with Deaf Services under Mental Health.  All of our programs, both those we operate and those we contract with, have specific SLPI levels in the job specifications.
