About Student Interpreters

Student interpreters are learning a variety of communication modes and systems:

  • American Sign Language Interpretation (ASL-based)
  • Transliteration (english-based)
  • Low Vision ASL and Tactile ASL for Deaf-Blind
  • Voicing (english-based) for our non-signing hearing clients

We adhere to ADA law in which requires licensed interpreters. To find out if you need to hire a licensed interpreter, please refer to ada.gov.

  1. Our student interpreters, are all Certified by the MCDHH as STUDENT Interpreters and bound by the MO State and STLCC Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics.
  2. Our student interpreters are able to serve in both MO and IL.
  3. Our student interpreters are actively completing their third year or equivalent of ASL interpreter training. They will have access to a mentor or professor to as questions about the event, ASL and English voicing techniques. Whenever possible we prefer at least two student interpreters for events, but sometimes schedules do not allow for this.
  4. Feedback is welcome from both deaf and hearing clients. Student interpreters are learning and it is important to have feedback to grow, both positive and negative.
