ContextGlobal initially provided ASL interpreters on an as-needed basis for three years. In 2014, however, DCPS sought a more expansive, full-time ASL escort program to meet students’ individual education plan (IEP) requirements. When considering ideal conditions under which students could thrive, ContextGlobal believed that continuous access to the same interpreter would create the most favorable learning environment.
ContextGlobal reviewed the IEPs of all students to match them with the best-suited interpreters. In addition, the company hired all interpreters providing full-time services as employees, helping to ensure each student served would receive uninterrupted support.
