This chapter focuses on interpreting in K-12 educational contexts. It describes linguistic demands and strategies that are applicable across a wide range of interpreting settings, and are relevant to both signed and spoken language interpreters. Given the variety of signed and spoken language-contact situations around the world, American Sign Language (ASL) and English are used as generic cover terms to illuminate some of the universal linguistic outcomes.

Keywords: sign language interpreting; K-12; American Sign Language; deaf education; linguistic demands; linguistic strategies
