Summary

This brief paper reports on a 1999 survey of all state education agencies (SEAs) regarding the provision of educational interpreting for students with hearing impairments. Specifically, the survey posed questions regarding the number of students served under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act for whom educational interpreting is necessary, the number of educational interpreters available in the state or jurisdiction, the minimum certification requirements for educational interpreters, and guidelines for the evaluation of those currently employed in such positions. The survey found wide discrepancies between and within states in their capacity to meet the need for educational interpreters. However, SEAs are increasingly moving toward developing guidelines or legislation requiring educational interpreters to be certified or licensed by the state. Other issues addressed include pre-service preparation of interpreters, recruitment and inservice training, technical assistance needs, appropriate student needs assessment, and consistency in cost and services.
