Third Eye Theater and Benefits to your Business
Patrons with hearing loss, like any other, do not attend performances or events in isolation. They attend with friends and family. Potential ticket purchases to your event may depend on whether accommodations have been secured for those who are part of the deaf community, which is not limited to the deaf and hard of hearing, but includes: interpreters, hearing signers, students of the language and culture, friends, family and those who support American Sign Language and Deaf Culture.
Some in this community may decide to attend a particular performance or event hosted by an organization who is known for consistent, professional accommodative services.
Once the interpreted experience has been positive and consistent hearing and deaf patrons may promote the events your organization offers above those of other organizations.
Offering highly professional accommodative services to a linguistic minority may easily engender the full support of your organization, by those who support minority issues as an overall philosophy.
The American's with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title III requires that an agency or facility providing services to the public must be accessible to consumers with disabilities. In the event that your agency/facility will be serving consumers who are deaf or hard of hearing, you may need to obtain the services of a sign language interpreter.
