ABSTRACT

The purposes of this research are to investigate the existing interpretation services and to identify its values for college students with hearing impairment. Through this investigation, this research aims to have the better understanding of the interpretation services and intends to provide the foundational information for offering the better service for them. We conducted face to face interviews with six college students with hearing impairment who have received the interpretation services by Students with Disabilities Team. The results show that: (a) college students with hearing impairment have received professional services such as sign language interpretation service, professional stenographer service, and sentence interpretation helper service; (b) The students want to have the prompt development to create professional terminologies, to have professional interpreters knowledgeable for their disciplinary areas, and to have interpreters being passionate for their professional interpretation; and (c) The students consider the professional interpretation as a bridge that guides them to the real world. As a function of a language bridge, the interpretation service can be valued as a helper for study, visible and hearing language, and a replacement of both ears and mouth. This study suggests that the interpret system for the students with hearing impairment is not mere language transfer, it is their life.
