During the 2005-2010 grant cycle, the Deaf Interpreter Practice work-team delineated the unique competencies required of Deaf interpreters in a document titled Toward Effective Practice: Competencies of the Deaf Interpreter.
In order to build upon that foundation, an expert team of Deaf interpreter practitioners and educators developed a curriculum reflecting the skills and knowledge sets described in the report.
Team members worked with a curriculum specialist to develop instructional modules and materials.
After the modules were piloted in the Road to Deaf Interpreting training series, they were evaluated and revised. The finalized curriculum is available online at DIInstitute.org.
