All About the Certified Deaf Interpreter
History in the emergence of CDIs
Certified Deaf Interpreters (CDIs) have been gaining propriety since around 1992. While the concept of CDIs are not new, research and programs surrounding this field is increasing and reaping positive results. In some areas of the country, CDI's are mandatory in situations that have anything to do with life and liberty (i.e. serious health concerns, legal, Deaf-Blind, and the like). In 2015, the very first Deaf Interpreters' Conference was held in St. Paul, Minnesota with over 200 attendees.
