Welcome to Klaipeda County Sign Language Interpreter Center !
Lithuanian Sign Language (LSL) was recognised as a language in its own right by the Lithuanian government in May 4th 1995. LSL is the first or preffered language of an estimated 6,000 deaf people and more than 40, 000 hearing impaired people. LSL is a visual gestual language with its own grammar and principles, which are fundamentally different from the grammar of Lithuanian language.
This Klaipeda County Sign Language Interpreter Center facilitates a communication between deaf and hearing people. The Center is a government funded organisation and provides services in Klaipeda and Taurage districts. It was established in December 3d. 2004.
