Educational Interpreting has been practiced in this country in earnest for at least35 years. Estimates (Marshark, 2005) are that over 75% of deaf children aremainstreamed, receiving the bulk of their academic experience in circumstances mediated by sign language interpreters. For the first 25 years little was known about this curricular innovation. It was decreed and delivered on a purely theoretical basis and, for a time, itsufficed to meet the requirement that it be provided. Its implementation was both pilloried and praised, but for all this the efficacy of interpreters and interpretation inclassrooms escaped scientific study.
