Classroom Interpreting

Classroom Interpreters - Interpreters and Children - Fostering Social Interaction

Social Events and the Role of the Interpreter

All students benefit from both the academic and the extra-curricular aspects of the school program. We know that social events and interaction are important to development and important to a student’s quality of life. Social interaction helps all students develop skills in social interaction, collaboration, and leadership. Because of this, deaf and hard of hearing students should have the same access to social events and extra-curricular activities as all other students in the school. A qualified interpreter should be provided.
