EIPA Exam Resources and Professional Development

​Boys Town offers many resources for interpreters, agencies and EIPA candidates.

National Association of Interpreters in Education

The National Association of Interpreters in Education, NAIE, is an organization for interpreters who support the communication needs of students in educational settings. The NAIE promotes the pursuit of professional excellence regarding interpreting services in these settings.

A Series of Guides for Parents, Professionals, and Students

A series of publications was developed for school administrators, educators, educational interpreters, students, and parents to support language access for children who are deaf and hard of hearing in general education settings. The publications were developed through the collaborative efforts of Dr. Brenda Schick, Gallaudet University, and Boys Town National Research Hospital.

NAIE Professional Guidelines for Interpreting in Educational Settings

The NAIE Professional Guidelines support local and state education agencies, educational interpreters, parents, and other essential stakeholders in establishing and implementing best practices in educational interpreting.
