Deaf-Hearing Interpreter teams: A Teamwork Approach

Abstract

Little research has been done on the perspectives of members of Deaf-hearing interpreter teams. Interviews were conducted by and with Deaf interpreters and hearing interpreters who had experience working in Deaf-hearing interpreter teams. The Demand-Control Schema was part of the framework for the study. Expectations of each other and roles played during preconferencing and postconferencing were important aspects of the study. This article presents perspectives and recommendations of team members, who shared positive and negative experiences that need to be considered when providing training for Deaf-hearing interpreter teams.
