Guidelines for Educational Interpreting.
Cohen, Joan; And Others
Developed by individuals representing national and state organizations, parents, and consumer groups, this New Jersey guide presents information designed to assist local school districts in the provision of educational interpreting services for students who are deaf/hard of hearing. Introductory sections explain the guide's development and briefly review the history of interpreting. Next, federal legislation relevant to interpreting is reviewed, including: the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The third section identifies specific roles and responsibilities of the interpreter, including participation on child study teams, in the development or review of a student's individualized education program, and in testing situations. The following sections discuss interpreter certification programs, components of a job description, recruitment, hiring, supervision, and professional development. Appendices include a list of frequently used terms, a list of interpreter training programs and referral agencies, and a list of 14 organizational resources. (Contains 18 references.) (CR)
