Noting that the services provided by interpreters for the deaf and hard-of-hearing in educational settings are often inferior to those offered in other domains, such as medical or judicial settings, Seal (communication sciences and disorders, James Madison U.) cautions that education interpreting practices should always be held to the best possible standard. She describes ideal practices for specific grade levels from preschool through high school, and discusses issues related to personnel, administration, higher education, and research.
