Interpreting & Sign Language Resources
The Interpreting and Sign Language Resources (ISLR) department at the Ohio School for the Deaf serves Ohio pre-K-12 schools, public school interpreters, and interpreting students. ISLR provides professional development for educational interpreters, including numerous workshops across the state. Additional services  include mentoring , internships , American Sign Language assessments , and consultation .

ISLR was founded in the fall of 1998 in response to the passage of the teacher certification and licensure law in Ohio which required educational interpreters to have credentials and on-going professional development. ISLR was founded as joint venture between the Ohio School for the Deaf and the Office of Exceptional Children at the Ohio Department of Education.

We invite you to explore our web site to learn more about our programs and services. Read our recent newsletters  to learn more about recent ISLR developments. You are also welcome to join our mailing list  to receive updates about news of interest to Ohio educational interpreters.

The ISLR Advisory Committee has revised the Ohio Guidelines for Educational Interpreters, originally published by the Ohio Department of Education in October, 2000.
