Sign Language Proficiency Interview

Many different programs in Alabama use scores from the Sign Language Proficiency Interview (SLPI) 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. 

We will be adding more and more information in this section as time goes on.
