Kyle Kiser - Founder of Clarity Language Access / American Sign Language Professor
Thank you for visiting our website. My name is Kyle Kiser and I am a proud member of the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing community in Shelby, NC. I’m also an active ally who holds an MS degree in Deaf Studies & Deaf Education, as well as a BA degree in American Sign Language. I have a passion for teaching ASL, Deaf History, and ASL Linguistics in addition to raising awareness in regard to the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing community, our culture, and rights.
For many years, I had to advocate for myself to get the appropriate accommodations I needed in able to learn and communicate equally with my hearing peers. Growing up without communication access was a difficult challenge that I believe no one should have to experience. When I finished college, my first objective was to find a job in the educational or health and human service field. My intuition was clear to me...I had the desire to educate students, families, and the community about communication access rights pertaining to the Deaf & Hearing communities at large. I landed a job with the North Carolina Division of Services for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing as a Communication Accessibility Consultant for the South-Eastern part of North Carolina where service is provided in twelve counties. During my time there I gained a wealth of knowledge about ADA laws, interpreting rights, general accessibility, and technology accessibility. Once I completed my MS degree with many years of experience as an ASL/Interpreter Instructor, I knew it was my destiny to open up a business.
In June 2015, Clarity Language Access, LLC (CLA) was born with a team of only two employees. Today, our agency provides ASL & Spanish interpreting services in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. We’re very grateful and appreciative of our amazing highly-qualified American Sign Language and Spanish interpreting team members.
