Interpreting in Vocational Rehabilitation Settings

The NCIEC, employing an effective practices approach to curricular resource development, has created several resources related to interpreting in Vocational Rehabilitation Settings. These resources include domains and competencies, an annotated bibliography, literature review, and focus group findings. Based on these foundational documents, curricular resources have been developed including study guides, online modules, a manual for engagement between interpreter education programs and Vocational Rehabilitation agencies and a video series featuring authentic Vocational Rehabilitation settings.

All of these print resources can be found on the NCIEC website using the green button on the right of this page.

This video series is now available online. The collection of videos includes six titles that are listed on the right of this page. The titles include: A Vocational Evaluation, A VR Staff Meeting, Deaf Professionals in Action, Setting a Vocational Goal, Stories form Life Experiences, Support in the Job Search. Each video offers 20 to 60 minutes of text involving VR Deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing consumers, Deaf Professionals working in the VR context, and other VR professionals. The texts can be viewed with or without an interpreter and with or without captions.

To download the videos stored in our video repository, please browse the collection at the Northeastern Library System’s website.
