Abstract

A survey of interpreter training programs was conducted in the fall of 1983 to determine the number of trainees entering the field in 1984 and the percent typically obtaining employment in public elementary and secondary schools. Interpreter training program directors were asked to list areas of need or concern in the preparation of educational interpreters. Results indicated that approximately 37% of the trainees are obtaining employment in public school settings, and a need is perceived for clarification of the role and responsibilities of such an interpreter and for training specific to this setting.
