Interpreter Study Group

 

This three-part study group is facilitated by a certified interpreter and hearing specialists.  This group is designed for interpreters, interpreter supervisors and educators working with interpreters.

Session 1: The Educational Interpreter’s Role as a Member of the IEP Team

This session will provide participants an opportunity to dialogue about their role as a member of the IEP team. We will discuss the decisions that interpreters make on a daily basis while interpreting and how to objectively report one’s observations to the IEP team. We will discuss what is appropriate and inappropriate and how to maintain confidentiality.

Session 2: Ethical Dilemmas: Decision Making in the K-12 Classroom

This session will provide participants an opportunity to dialogue about common dilemmas that arise in the K-12 setting. We will discuss the range of ethical choices based on the EIPA Guidelines of Professional Conduct.

Session 3: Interpreting for Students with Cochlear Implants

This study group will provide participants an opportunity to explore strategies to guide decisions made when interpreting for students with varying auditory and visual needs.

Study Groups consist of three 2-hours courses (6 hours total); however additional hours may be added to tailor the study group to the specific needs of the organization.
