If the deaf individual didn’t ask for an interpreter do I still need one?

It is best to discuss openly with the employee/client/individual if they would prefer or benefit from the use of an interpreter. It’s best not to guess or assume whether or not someone needs an interpreter; it’s best to ask directly if they need or want an interpreter. Sometimes deaf individuals are hesitant to request an interpreter due to the cost on the company or are not aware that the service is available to be requested.
