This course is designed to help Audiologists and other professionals who work with the Deaf/Hard of Hearing population understand how and when to use interpreters in our work, what topics can be most difficult to convey through an interpreter, and what cultural differences need to be kept in mind as we communicate with our patients/clients/families through an interpreter. This discussion will relate to the use of Spanish/English interpreters as well as ASL/English interpreters but could be applied to other languages, as well. We will discuss how Audiology-related information may be received by different cultures. Additionally, the roles and responsibilities of the professional and the interpreter will be reviewed.
