Six Interactive Situations for Interpreting Practice

“School Concerns”

This is a meeting between a principal of a fictional school, Duluth Elementary, and a two Deaf people. One is a mom of a Deaf student, Sammy, and the other is an advocate there to help ensure that this mother’s concerns are heard. The main concern to be addressed is the impact of an interpreter’s frequent absences on her daughter’s education and the schools inability to locate qualified substitutes.
