TESTIMONIALS

“The staff demonstrates continued flexibility adjusting to the communication needs of the consumers. There are multiple ways to access the vocabulary, thus empowering consumer choice in language preference and mitigating frustrations for early language learners. Choice and flexibility is provided throughout the day.” – PROGRAM EVALUATOR

“We learned new things which is important for my children’s’ education. We look forward to visiting the museum even without an interpreter.”- PARENT

CMA created a video for museum staff with support from the Institute of Museum and Libraries and our community partner LC Interpreting Services.
