Ohio Guidelines for Educational Interpreters

For some Ohio students who are deaf or hearing impaired, access to the general curriculum involves the services of a qualified sign language educational interpreter. To assist educational teams in providing appropriate educational interpreting services to these children, the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) published Ohio Guidelines for Educational Interpreters in October, 2000.

Since 2000, there have been many changes in education and interpreting that impact the work of interpreters in public school settings. In cooperation with the ODE, the Interpreting and Sign Language Resources (ISLR) Advisory Committee revised the Guidelines to reflect these changes. The newly updated publication was reviewed by consultants at ODE and Ohio educators.

We are confident that this newly revised Ohio Guidelines for Educational Interpreters provides the current information you need to serve your hearing impaired students.
