Nexus provides Interpreter services to Eastern Washington, Central Washington, and Northern Idaho. Our Interpreter Services Coordinator works closely to establish a professional relationship with businesses and Interpreters to ensure a smooth and efficient process.
Additionally, Nexus works with Interpreters who are professionally trained and certified and have a variety of credentials, skills, and knowledge necessary to facilitate equivalent communication for people who do not share a common language and/or communication mode. Not only are our interpreters in good standing with the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID); they are also trained in HIPAA and State privacy laws, and have successfully passed a background check with the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS).
Above all, when requesting an interpreter through Nexus, your request is tailored to the specific nature of the assignment that determines the particular skills needed by an interpreter for each job. Factors considered are level of skills, setting, language preference of the consumer and level of discourse.
Classroom Interpreting for Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Five publications have been developed for school administrators, educators, educational interpreters, students, and parents to support language access for deaf and hard of hearing children in general education settings. The publications were developed in collaboration with Dr. Brenda Schick and Boys Town National Research Hospital and are based on the content of Dr. Schick's Classroom Interpreting website maintained by Boys Town National Research Hospital.
