What about interpreters for students who are deaf?

Students who are deaf may work closely with an American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter. ASL Interpreters may be used to facilitate communication in the classroom, laboratories, field trips and other class-related activities. Instructors are requested to address any communication in a class (i.e., questions, responses to comments, etc.) to the student using an interpreter directly to the student, and not to the interpreter. Students who use interpreters are asked to wait for 15 minutes if their interpreters are late. Likewise, and interpreter is asked to wait for 15 minutes if the student is late.
