Deaf Interpreter Initiative

During the 2005-2010 grant cycle the Deaf Interpreting work team delineated the unique competencies required of Deaf interpreters in a document titled Toward Effective Practice: Competencies of the Deaf Interpreter (  In order to build upon that foundation, an expert team of Deaf interpreter practitioners and educators are developing a curriculum reflecting the skills and knowledge sets described in the report.  Team members are working with a curriculum specialist to develop instructional modules and materials.  The modules will be piloted in the Road to Deaf Interpreting training series, evaluated, and finally disseminated to promote replication.
